Storyline

Gossett and Rowlands find themselves in a dispute over the custody of a young adorable biracial girl who just happens to be their grandchild. The child's (Jacey) parents are Gossett's son and Rowland's daughter and have died in a tragic accident leaving the granddaughter's custody up in the air. Both Grandparents want custody, but Rowlands is an older Southern woman who still easily sees the difference between black and white and it is deeper than just skin color. Gossett is also older and not without his preconceived notions of whites either, but together they get to know each other as people, not stereotypes, through the love of a grandchild.

Warm hearted film about new beginnings
13 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A wonderful, warm hearted film that captivates family and bridges gaps between the races. Gena Rowlands, Louis Gossett Jr. and Penny Bae Bridges do an excellent portrayal of how if we come together, there is nothing we can't accomplish. Georgia (Gena Rowlands) is suddenly confronted with pain and is thrown into a situation that she didn't even know existed. Georgia instantly bonds with Jacey and they become inseparable. Lou throws a bit of a jolt as he comes in from San Diego. Difficult situations and triumphs are dealt with as adaptations become realities! There is a lot to be learned from this warm and gentle hearted feature.
