Storyline

Keith Bennets mother passed away a year ago, and he feels like he has moved on with his life, until one morning his mothers jewelry shows up on Keiths bathroom sink. The same jewelry she was buried in. Keith tells his wife Karen, about the jewelry and that is the last straw. She claims he is distant and has shut her out. Now he thinks he is seeing things that aren't there and if things don't improve, she will take their only son and leave. Forced with the ultimatum, Keith launches himself on a day of reclamation. Keith winds up on the phone with a popular radio Psychiatrist who guides Keith through what he cannot see on his own. Keith discovers a new man and a new attitude. Several people are listening to Keith's plight on the radio and are making changes of their own. Is this dead visitor all in Keith's head or is she truly a Mother Ghost? Written by Mark Thompson

Everyone Has Trouble Dealing With Loss
17 December 2008 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

This film is cinematic drama story telling done exceptionally good.

The acting and directing are not TOO polished, yet everybody involved in this film, appreciates the truthfulness of the story elements.

Without spoiling anything, it's about a man going thorough a personal crisis, and he just happens to do it in-front of everyone.

Although realistically the chances of dealing with real issues, and resolving them in a 1 hour period is slim, the story is believable and the empathic bonding with the audience works well.

The only ones who will not appreciate this, are the ones not emotionally mature enough to face their own feeling (yes, I mean you action/macho only no-feeling-to-be-hurt guys).

If you've ever experienced loss, or in a complex relationship, or personally know someone who has - (which is about almost everybody), you'll probably appreciate this film.

On a more personal note, although the film has the usual disclaimer that all of the characters are fictional, and that the story is not true, I believe it's very true. Although the plot is probably fictional, the people are based on the filmmakers' experiences, and we can see that in the ending credits with the dedications to the filmmaker's lost ones.

I usually go after the "easy" viewing stuff, but this one was well done, and I'd recommended it to anyone looking for a goodhearted intimate film, which doesn't leave you untouched at the end.
