Storyline

After years of anxious waiting, a suitable heart becomes available for Jill Maddox. It isn't rejected by her body, but feels very strange and seems to change her character completely, mainly more adventurous. She gets visions with clues to trace down her donor, Matt, who died in a motor crash, and contacts the family. It's all too much for Jill's daughter, gifted violinist Amanda, who was okay playing the perfect nurse but now feels lost and betrayed, despite support from her boyfriend Billy.

Surprises Galore
19 December 2002 | by (Delaware, USA) – See all my reviews

I was expecting a normal, everyday Jane Seymore movie....happy-go-lucky, fun, great movie. I guess I expected wrong. You have to be prepared for a fairly sad movie throughout, before sitting down to watch this one. I thought it would get better, but the "Happy Ending" thing happened within the last five minutes of the movie. It's a bit of a disappointment, but it's still a good movie. There are a few surprises along the way. Maggie Lawson, who plays Seymore's daughter, is great. I felt myself relating to her. Her character is wonderful. She's the brightness of this movie.
