Storyline

A couple in their forties face an unplanned pregnancy after many years of marriage. They long since gave up trying to have children, believing it wasn't possible. While the husband is thrilled, the wife has conflicting feelings. She is happy with their life, has a job she loves and thinks they are too old to be having their first child, but isn't sure that having an abortion is the right decision. The pair receive a lot of advice, some solicited and some not, from friends, family, doctors and even strangers. Written by Anonymous

A First Rate Feel Good Movie That Makes Your Heart Soar!!!
23 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie of the week is a movie I never expected to see on DVD. I am SO HAPPY that it has finally been released. You feel as though you are living through the characters eyes and feel what they feel. It feels very real when you see the struggle of this middle aged couple trying to decide if they want a child after so many years of marriage. Very heart felt and sincere movie. Very fast paced movie and it tugs at your heart. WONDERFUL!!! I would shout it from the roof tops for everyone to get this wonderful movie! I can only hope that other movies of the week will find themselves on DVD shorty just like THIS GEM OF A FILM! Unforgettable and worth getting.
