Storyline

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 beautiful movie that continues to haunt me 15 years after I first saw it.
25 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 15 when I saw The Four Diamonds, but I adored it. It made me laugh; it made me cry. It made me believe and hope and care. The movie presented a story that was at one time honest and blunt about the challenges of being a teenager with a critical illness, and at the same time beautiful with hope and inspiration and dreams. I always wanted to tape the movie, but I never did, and then it went off the air and I never saw it again. I have tried to track down a copy of it and I have tried to e-mail Disney in the hopes of getting it re-aired. It's a great movie and people deserve to see it again. People need to see it again. I need to see it again.
