Storyline

A road accident leaves seven-year-old Frankie Heywood gravely injured and deeply comatose, when she is hit by a bus, and her twelve-year-old brother Ben severely depressed and traumatised after he witnessed the event. Their parents, Jack and Alison, have to put aside their fights over their unstable marriage to focus on their damaged children. But as life looks as if it will never improve for the Heywoods, Jack and Alison hear of a controversial medical therapy that could cajole Frankie from her coma. The treatment involves communicating with the comatose patient to coax them back to consciousness and Ben is the key to unlocking Frankie from her sleep. But will the Heywoods risk their son to save their daughter...? Written by Jake and Fifi

This movie was very slow and unbelievable. The only reason I went to see it is because it was a free screening and one of my favorite actors, Andy Garcia, was in it. Basically, there were many problems with the film. When the little girl was in a coma and the doctor, played by Angela Bassett, sends her brother in to "bring her back", it was a bit far-fetched for the doctor to go in after them by way of hypnosis when the little girl was in a coma and the boy was perfectly healthy. Hmmm.....There were only a couple of spots where it got exciting. One was when the boy jumped into the sea because he was hallucinating about his sister and the other was when the boy got out of control in the hospital. The little boy was a phenomenal actor. I hope he gets more work.
