life, loyalty, love......
13 July 2001 | by (Holland Mich) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at a local film festival. The story for the most part is true. I had the opportunity to talk to some of the cast and director. They were all great and the film itself was amazing.

Kristin Minter and Scott Baio brought the characters to life and showed great emotion. I loved seeing Minter in a different element than that of ER, and it was nice to see Baio again.

The story brought tears to my eyes and laughter to the room. It's a story of life, loyalty, love , and the importance of family.

This film is a must see.
