A high school swim champion with a troubled past enrolls in the U.S. Coast Guard's "A" School, where legendary rescue swimmer Ben Randall teaches him some hard lessons about loss, love, and self-sacrifice.
Dr. Joe Darrow is a recently widowed doctor. He is grieving due to the death of his pregnant wife in a Red Cross mission in Venezuela. Although being atheist, he began to believe that his dead wife wants to communicate with him, through her young patients in the Pediatrics of a Chicago hospital. Written by

Alison Lohman had a small role as a cancer patient but was cut out of the movie. Since she shaved her hair off for the part, she had to wear a wig throughout her next movie, White Oleander (2002). See more »
Near the end, when Joe is in the submerged school bus the water is calm and the bubbles from his nose rise gracefully toward the surface. However, the bus is supposed to be in quickly moving rapids at the bottom of a waterfall. Visibility would be near zero, and he should be fighting the current (which he is not). See more »

It's bad, Joe. They're evacuating the villages. We're about to be washed out. We're hearing gunfire now.
Can you... can you get to Calamar? Can you get across the border to Columbia?
They're putting us on the bus. I don't know where they're taking us. Joe? Joe?

This is an awesome movie. It is just right for Kevin Costner. If I had a doctor like him, I would actually go to see one. The story is touching and beautiful. I love it from beginning to end. I wish others could appreciate this film as much as everybody I know, including myself, did. I'm not a real fan of spooky movies, but this was different. It was hauntingly beautiful. I would recommend seeing this on a cold, cloudy day, snuggling with your heart's desire.
