Storyline

Jason is a small-time criminal and con artist. His misdemeanours range from petty scams to outright robberies. He is also manipulative and domineering. But his girlfriend Cheryl is so desperate to become a recognized artist that she willingly assists in his rackets. The big carrot that Jason dangles in front of her is a gallery showing of her art. One evening, while fleeing the scene of a variety store robbery, Cheryl mistakenly thinks she has slammed the getaway car into Donald, a drunken philosopher. Cheryl thinks she's almost killed him, but Donald, who has a penchant for inept suicide attempts, believes she has saved his life and could be his guardian angel. Their lives become inextricably linked. Written by Anonymous

An uplifting story made for TV
29 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is such an uplifting story ... makes you wonder about this crazy world we live in , how we need to be in constant search of love and salvation . Sometimes , circumstances turn out to show us a truth that is different from reality and then things can become rather complicated .

The producer uses a different aspect of camera work to show the dramatic side of the story .

I am a fan of Megan Follows and I think this film may be different from all of her other work , but I truly enjoyed watching it .

Jaimz Woolvett was also exceptional in his role .

Overall, this is a film I would recommend that you watch when it's scheduled on television.
