Gaten is recently widowed when he marries Sara Kate (Elizabeth McGovern) a white woman. His family is less than happy about this development, but when tragedy strikes and Clover is placed in Sara Kate’s care, everyone is forced to put their differences aside.

There’s nothing wrong with the premise of this film, it sets up a core conflict and the resolution is heartening. A cameo by Loretta Devine (Waiting to Exhale) as Gaten’s sister Everline serves to spice things up. However, weakness in writing leave the viewer to notice other things, like how the film is highly stylized in an early nineties fashion, how Sara Kate spends far too much time yelling “Gaten! Gaten! Gaten” while collapsing on the bed, »
