Storyline

Although Roxy left town more than fifteen years ago, her memory has never faded. Her expected return starts to impact a number of lives, including that of her former partner Denton Webb. But it is Dinky, the adopted daughter of the Bossettis and ignored by most of her classmates as a strange loner, who may be most changed. She is convinced she is Roxie's secret child. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Wonderful Soundtrack!
21 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

One of the best qualities of this film is the soundtrack. From the Soulsearching "Let the Sun Shine Through" to the frank and rythmic "If You Don't Like What You See," this film has many exceptional lyrics.
