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

This movie was good
18 November 2002 | by (Rochester, ny) – See all my reviews

This movie was excellent. It kept me interested in a fantastic, beautiful family who comes together at Ann Jillian's side. This is a beautiful picture of Love, Courage, and Determination! I have had people in my family with cancer and it is a great portrayal of this situation.
