Storyline

This story focuses on the changing relationship between two women, a mother and her daughter-in-law, over a 14 year span. The first is a domineering, self righteous and flamboyant former opera star who has alienated her son, a self-centered artist. His wife is a bright school teacher, who has trouble dealing with either of the two. The film looks at the first meeting of the two women before the marriage and moves forward in time with the mother-in-law interfering in the couple's marriage to the point of causing a separation. However, 14 years after the initial meeting, the mother has a devastating stroke and it is the daughter-in-law who steps in to help her and strives to give her the courage to survive. The film is about the wasted time that exists with many human relationships. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Great story of love and hate
20 September 1998 | by (florida) – See all my reviews

This is probably the best I have ever seen Farrah Fawcett act in any tv series or movie. I am not a great follower of Ms Fawcett but she has come a long way since Charlie's Angels. I do have to give her credit she really carried this movie with her acting abilities and not her looks.
