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

Two Against Time
28 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

I have worked in health care for many years. I had the awesome opportunity to care for my dying mother in my home. I have taken care of several cancer patients. This movie is excellent! It touched my soul and helped me get through the emotions connected with my relationship with my mother in those last precious months. This movie shows some of the dynamics and emotions a family can go through. As a daughter who stood by her mothers bedside, I related to this movie. As a mother of 6 (4 girls and 2 boys) I can't imagine any of my children having cancer. I recently found a copy of this movie on ebay, I have been searching for it ever since I saw it on TV as I wanted to share it with my sister. I highly recommend this movie. And will enjoy watching it again and again.
