Storyline

Wealthy Gregg and his wife, English teacher Julie, were happy parents until their little boy Robby was stolen while she took a bath. Their lives have taken off again, but they keep hoping and feeling guilty. Fifteen years later, when Julie is pregnant again, the high school principal appeals to her educational idealism to take under her wing Jesse, a boy who is gifted as a mechanic and artist, but can barely be convinced to keep in school by his single devoted and devout mother Esperanza, who is sick and such a bad provider he has to steal. They alternate between getting on and clashing; Jesse even breaks in to steal a ring from Julie for his girlfriend Nilda. the finding of a Saint Blaise pendant in Robby's crib finally puts Julie on the kidnapper's trace- it leads via parish priest Ramirez, who is now in a home for the demented, to a devout Esperanza...

It had me in tears!!
6 August 1999 | by (Letchworth England) – See all my reviews

I've just seen this film on carlton {london's local ITV network] & i'm writing this with tears streaming down my cheeks!! I will not give away the ending although from the start that will be pretty obvious.! This film was not your typical TV Movie - Yes ok it tugged your heartstrings but not in that sickly sweet finger-down-the-throat way of the majority of the genre. The main character - "Jesse" was sensitively & magnificently portrayed by Scott Bairstow -Who He? Well it's the first time i've ever seen him as well. [Check his profile on IMDB for where you may have seen him before-i for one want to see a LOT more of him! Ooerr!!] It held me spellbound the entire 90minutes - spoiled only by the annoying ad. breaks. The climax will move you to tears-as it did me-a 35yr old guy-unless you are totally insensitive &/or numb from the neck up that is.. Check it out-you know you want to! Rating 10/10 Emotionally draining.
