Best Movie to Watch If u Luv Drama!
17 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched this movie last night on Lifetime TV. I simply loved everything about the movie. The actor (also the director/writer) did an amazing job! I also liked the little girl, she has tremendous future in movies! As soon as the movie starts, you are suddenly put in Pablo's life. Every moment he goes through - u feel it. He does everything for his daughter. This movie is based on true story, which is sad. It's a story of courage, emotions, drama, a father, and daughter. Even though, the main character is somewhat of a criminal, you just feel sorry for him and sympathize with him. His crime was an accident. I liked and didn't like the ending. I think when u see the movie, you'll understand why I say that.

This movie is not to be missed. By these first time writers and directors - this is a movie that shows a lot of promise and their skills.

Go rent it or buy it ! This movie is a must for everyone! I cried cried and cried during this be ready with box of tissues.
