Storyline

Caroline has not had much luck in love. Boyfriends seem to either leave her or cheat on her. Then she meets a shy, introverted man at work named Adam. When leaving work one day, two men attack her. Adam comes to her rescue. Unfortunately, retaliation by the attackers sends Adam to the hospital where he finds out he has a diseased heart. Adam is an orphan and was told he had a baboon's heart. He refuses a transplant, as he believes his love for Caroline is contained in his damaged heart. Before tragedy can strike, they have a passionate but brief romance. Adam opens up to Caroline and he, in turn, heals her broken heart. Written by msdebello@aol.com

This film is from the heart!
17 March 2003 | by (London England) – See all my reviews

This film is one of the warmest and truly from the heart pictures I have seen in recent years and from the out set in the orphanage to the warmth you could feel in the could at Christmas this film shines through. The leads are perfect and the direction all but flawless. You could never say that Tony Bill missed his chance in the film business with a carrier spanning more than 40 years with countless acting roles in films such as Ice Station Zebra, as a director he shorly has more great stories to tell and would love to see him at the helm of a non made for TV film once again, where he should be!.
