Storyline

The platonic friendship between two high school youths is explored through the attempts to get the girl an abortion. Her young male friend offers his support and tries to find her a doctor. She is grateful, but has trouble in expressing her thanks. At times funny, at other times touching, this is a refreshing, uncommon look at teenage friendship. Written by Anonymous

Pamela Sue Martin has never been better
28 March 1999 | by (Arnhem, Holland) – See all my reviews

This story of a teenage girl getting pregnant is in itself not very sensational today (more so in the year the movie was made), but it's the acting that makes this film as excellent as it is. Especially Pamela Sue Martin is great. She appeared in soaps and some tv-movies, but never gave a better performance.
