Storyline

This movie is first, a great love story between the Actress Ann Jillian and a Chicago Police Sgt. Andy Murcia. It's a show biz film of the young star rising and the cop who guided her career - and yes, when Ann Jillian got breast cancer. It's about how she beat cancer and went on to stardom. This film is a heartfelt story of a girl born to newly-arrived Lithuanian parents - the film is so inspiring - a must see for lovers, as well as for newcomers in show business. It's a real people picture with a great true story. Written by Marty Vergari

Great film, singing and acting!
8 March 2007 | by (L.A. Çalifornia) – See all my reviews

I'm Ann Jillian's manager & husband. I must take exception with reviewer from Australia - as a co-producer of this film I can assure him that the singing by Ann Jillian was in fact her singing voice and just because I as Ann's manager was not able to land a recording contract that would have given her the singing success her voice truly deserved (as pointed out by our good Aussie friend) it should not have him thinking that was not Ann Jillian's great voice - as it surely was. The great Steve Allen loved Ann's voice so much that he produced a CD "In The Middle Of Love" with Ann singing 11 of his song compositions - to listen to it you will hear her terrific voice. The script is true, I know, I'm Ann's husband and I was there. Both Ann and I are so happy that every time this movie of hers airs it has the ability to save another womens life from breast cancer - and doing so while being inspired and well entertained. We paid for this with our privacy but it was indeed a price well spent. Ann continues to speak out against breast cancer and will not stop until there is a cure for all. Sincerely, Andy Murcia.
