While Melissa, filled with the insecurities of her youth, struggles to find the strength to pursue her childhood dreams. Although apart, their lives are forever connected.

A passionate film driven by fate!
22 January 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a strong indie that I would recommend to anyone who has experienced love and loss and to those who still hope for that tiny sense of magic in life. The director has made a very passionate film about fate and the cards we are dealt in life. Bravo and many congrats to the forces that combined to make such a deeply personal and sensitive film!!!
