For Kevin Tunell, life is one big party. The party ends when he decides to drive drunk, and ends up killing Maggie Glendon. He is brought before the judge, where he is given the usual punishment for drunk drivers, but the Glendon's attorney has a very unique idea to make it sink in that he killed their daughter. Her idea is to for Kevin to send the Glendon's one dollar a week for the next eighteen years (which is how old Maggie was before she was killed). Kevin goes along with it, but finds it hard to keep up with the punishment. Written by Pat McCurry

A powerful look at the effects of drunk driving...
13 July 2003 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

Sam Rockwell (Charlie's Angels, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind) plays Kevin Tunnell, a young man who makes the mistake of drinking and driving and ends up killing a classmate in his senior year of high school. His sentence: on every Friday for the next 18 years, Kevin has to send a check for $1.00 to the parents of the girl he killed.

Kevin struggles to meet this weekly deadline and falls deeper and deeper into regret over the life he took. No happy endings here, folks; this is a true story.

Also, keep an eye out for a small, but powerful, showing by Jane Adams (Happiness, Orange County) as Kevin's girlfriend.
