You would think it is a vampire movie of some sort, but no it is a drama.
1 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

The film was somewhat interesting to watch, as it is a film that shows how people react to things that they do not understand. Which is to say the movie shows people's negative reactions to stuff they do not understand. The plot has a family of five which includes a mother, a father, two girls, and a son of a previous marriage of the mother. During an outing one of the girls gets severely sun burned which normally would not be anything abnormal, however this occurred in a stunningly short amount of time. Well they take her to the doctor and find that not only she, but her other sister as well has some rare disease that causes them both to be very susceptible to getting burned if they stay in direct sunlight to long to the point they could die. Well this causes a stir in the town they are in and the family is basically forced out seeing as how everyone thinks these two girls might give their children a disease that is not the type that can be transmitted to another, but rather genetic. You would think the doctors and such could have educated the town on this and the poor family might not have been forced out. Well they have a road trip and then they try settling into a new home. The film was not originally a lifetime channel movie, but it sort of plays out like one in spurts. The illness the two girls suffer from though makes the movie more interesting than it would have had the sickness been something more common. Nothing great, but it passes the time.
