Basically an advertisement for organ donors
22 August 2007 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

ABC afterschool specials. This certainly was a special because it ended up on video. however, despite the great message, it's nothing more than an advertisement for organ donorship. in the end, there's a message stating where you can contact someone for info on the idea.

Nick Santana is apparently a bad kid. he hangs out with the wrong crowd, gets expelled from school, and to begin the story, he has a tumor in his head. He's brought to the hospital where he befriends a boy named Keith. Keith has been in the hospital for a while, on a machine that does what his bad kidney cannot. eventually, nick believes he'll die, and wants to donate one of his kidney's to Keith.

you're not gonna enjoy this video. bottom line, 4/10.
