PG Certificate


Our Score
In this sentimental TV-movie drama from director Michael Switzer, Katey Sagal plays a happily married woman with a career in real estate who is diagnosed with terminal cancer shortly after giving birth to a daughter. Annabeth Gish plays the divorced nurse who comes into Sagal's life and gives her family hope for the future. Even though it's based on a true story, it's a very contrived scenario, full of brave smiles and lachrymose lapses calculated to leave the viewer misty eyed.


A woman's joy at a long-awaited pregnancy is shattered by the discovery that she has an inoperable tumour, forcing her to put aside her grief and make provisions for her baby and husband. Drama, starring Katey Sagal, Annabeth Gish and Tom Irwin.
