worth seeing, first rate canadian movie,,2 thumbs up!!!
2 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie touched my heart and soul. It covered a very difficult and touching issue based on a true story. It was directed and shown with the love and dignity that the Mother wanted to portray of the life and death of a child and to make people more aware of Rett Syndrome, something that most libraries and people have very little knowledge of.
