Young Christopher Millard fantasizes about being a squire of the Round Table and studies the stars. But when his difficulty breathing turns out to be caused by a tumor, his fantasies turn into a means to battle the disease. Chemotherapy eats his summer and instead of writing the standard "What I did during my summer vacation", his teacher lets him write a fictional story, and Chris makes characters from the people around him. As Chris battles with doctor, treatments, and the illness, Squire Millard goes on a quest against an evil sorceress to gain the four diamonds of Courage, Wisdom, Honesty, and Strength: qualities that Chris himself attains as his health fails.

A great film, very moving.
11 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember when this movie aired and I taped it at the time. I was so moved by what I saw that I took the tape to my 8th grade English teacher so that we could watch it in class. We never had the opportunity to watch it and I ended up leaving it at the school. I wish that I still had that tape because I think about the film often. I've tried to remember specifics about the acting and writing but sadly I can't.If anyone knows how to secure a copy of the movie please post some info. I work with terminally ill children and I think this movie would inspire them to fight hard for as long as they can and to not give up. If anyone can help I would appreciate it. Thank you.
