Storyline

Based on the true story of one mother's quest for justice, this Lifetime Original Movie explores the extraordinary impact on an ordinary family when the oldest son is critically injured by a drunk driver. The movie begins with every mother's worst nightmare: Terry Stone and her husband, Geoff, answer an early-morning phone call and learn that their 19-year-old son, Andrew, has been in a car accident. When they arrive at the hospital, the distraught family members are told that Andrew has suffered severe head injuries, and that he may never fully recover. A highway patrol officer who witnessed the accident adds the chilling news that the driver who did this to Andrew was drunk. Months later, after Andrew has recovered and leaves the rehabilitation center, Terry begins her long and emotionally draining fight to make certain that the person responsible for this tragedy makes amends. Through it all, Andrew keeps his sense of humor, and manages to teach his mother something in the process. Written by Jorja Tracy

Excellent Movie!
29 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was an excellent movie. I'm surprised there have not been any other comments about this movie. I thought Eric Lively, Mereidith Baxter and Alan Bates played the roles masterfully. They all should have won academy awards for the parts they played.

I think there should have been a more harsher punishment for the drunk driver. He should have been charged with more then he was charged with such as, reckless endangerment, wanton disregard for human safety and assault with a deadly weapon.

I give this movie 10 stars out of 10. I had to tape it because I like it so much.
