Ritter told the story behind the song: "The production put me up in a quaint but isolated flat in West Kensington (London), and I had nothing but a ukulele to keep me busy when I wasn't on set.
My first day of work I met Toni and watched her playing Milly, a wife and a mother of two, who had just been diagnosed with breast cancer. As heavy of a subject that is to discuss, let alone portray, I was immediately awestruck by Toni's bravery.
After my first day on set, I had this ringing in my ear. Having not composed a piece of music for over a year at that point, I didn't recognize that I was hearing a melody. With that melody, came the words. Immediately I knew what it was, it was a song for Milly, a song that was written as a goodbye note to her loved ones.
'There's A Place' is something I'm very proud of as it came from the purest center of myself. As soon as I finished the demo, I sent it to Catherine and she was into it, and as simple as that, it was in the movie."
