This is a beautiful and touching story.
6 August 2001 | by (Bowling Green, KY) – See all my reviews

First, let me say that I adore William Petersen so I may be a bit bias towards him. This story is beautiful, mystical and haunting all at the same time. And to top it off, it is based on a true story. If this ever comes out on video, I entend to buy it and I hope that others will to so they can feel the joy of this uplifting story. I'll be watching my TV listings to see if it ever comes back on. It is extremely well acted. The leads are wonderful together. Watch this.
