Melanie Mayron (thirtysomething) stars in this manipulative, densely plotted "women's" movie, which deals with the modern working woman's dilemma - how to balance career and family. Mayron plays a pediatrician whose professional life comes into conflict with the needs of her child and the desires of her husband. As she tries to cope with the pressure, her mental health becomes increasingly fragile, forcing her to re-examine her priorities. While many women will relate to Mayron's situation, they'll be disappointed by the overly simplistic ending that mars an otherwise well-intentioned film.


A doctor's relationship with a terminally ill child adds pressure to her already rocky marriage as she spends more time with her patient and gradually neglects her home life. Fact-based drama, starring Melanie Mayron, Eric Pospisil and Geraint Wyn Davies.
