A fair family drama

If it would have been made some years later, it could have been a KRAMER VS KRAMER rip off. OK, the scheme described above is not exactly the same, but we can find here some things in common. I am not a find of this kind of stuff, but it is rather pleasant to watch from time to time. It is curious that this was made by a vet from UK, Robert day, who also directed some TARZAN features. I don't know the actors of this movie for TV, but who cares, as long as it remains worth to see. Typical TV material, for housewives on afternoons.

It is also peculiar that this film has not been commented yet. Features far harder to find than this one have already been told about on IMDb. It also was released on french channels.
