Emotional TV drama.
19 September 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is an emotional TV drama about a woman named Margaret Gibson (Meredith Baxter), whose mental issues has caused her to be in danger of losing the custody of her son Aaron to her ex-husband. This leads to a pretty heroic courtroom fight in which Margaret is determined to prove that she is sane enough to keep her son.

This movie generated a lot of emotion for me as I watched Margaret go through endless hurdles and obstacles in the court system, while battling her mental issues. Her son Aaron also has a bit of a problem of his own, as he is depicted to be a shy and different kid compared to his school mates.

As with many TV movies, this story has some odd and hokey parts and dialog. But, the acting was decent and the movie contained heart-felt and courageous scenes about one's battle with her demons and love for her child, making this a TV drama that will sure bring tears to your eyes and one that will be heart-felt.

Grade B
