Storyline

Robert Portman lost his job, so he can't afford sufficient alimony for his ex, caterer Julie, and their adolescent kids, model student Michael and spoiled screwup Emma. The family pulls together when Emma is diagnosed with life-threatening cancer. Cultured fisherman George Tomich offers Julie true romance, but she gives priority to Emma and refuses to burden him when she's diagnosed with breast cancer herself, which she keeps secret by postponing her treatment until Emma has celebrated her graduation. Written by KGF Vissers

this movie has touched me
23 June 2004 | by (philippines) – See all my reviews

I can totally relate with Emma. I know exactly how it feels when your mother wants to take over your life. She's lucky that even though her mother can be a bit demanding at times she still knows her mother loves her. My mom and I haven't been in good terms since i was 13 (I'm 18 now). At a young age I've learned to hate her and instead of understanding me she built a wall between the two of us. Emma's lucky because even as she pushes her mother away her mom continues to reach out.

I cried throughout the film because i realized that I would never do what Emma did for her Mom and it scared me. My coldheartedness scared me. I can't even say I love my mom anymore.

I give this movie a thumbs up. The actors were really good. The movie was touching & I hope that a lot more people were touched and given hope. They should realize that life is short and that they should value every time spent with their family. I've lost all hope and I hope you guys don't.
