Storyline

Forever Love is a poignant new television movie about a woman who awakens from a 20-year-long coma and begins her life all over again. In the drama, suggested by a true story, Lizzie and Alex Brooks are a fairy tale young couple, wildly in love and the parents of a little girl, Emma. Then, without warning, 24-year-old Lizzie suffers a stoke. At the hospital, doctors tell Alex that his young wife has slipped into a deep coma and there is nothing to do but wait to see if she comes out of it. Alex, determined to keep his vow to love Lizzie in sickness and in health, decides to bring her home and take care of her. Alex is helped and consoled by Gail, Lizzie's best friend. Gail not only offers a loving friendship to Alex, she fills in for Lizzie with young Emma as well. When Gail's husband is killed in a car crash, Alex, Gail and Emma form a de facto family unit of their own until, 20 years after her stroke, Lizzie wakes up. Miraculously, Lizzie is pronounced perfectly healthy and begins ... Written by Anonymous

One of the most touching TV movies in a long time.
29 September 1998 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

I knew this would be a good movie, but I did not know that it would be this great! I thought it was very emotional and very believable. The scene where the woman sees her daughter again after being in a coma for twenty years is so touching. I am so glad I taped it, because I know I'll want to watch it over

and over, and pass it on to friends! I loved it!!
