A family's source of joy becomes the cause of all their grief. After years of trying to have a son, a couple finally decides to adopt one. While Shayne their only child is receptive at first, she finds herself getting increasingly jealous of Joel who has become the couple's center of attention. Shayne realizes that her adopted brother is no threat at all when he demonstrates his affection for her. But just when harmony is restored in the family, tragedy strikes during a beach excursion. Acting on a dare by Joel, Shane's father drifts afar from the shore and drowns. Shane's mother suffers a breakdown and blames Joel for the tragedy. Albeit Shane tries to hold the family together, the mother becomes inconsolable and demands that she return the boy to the orphanage. Now, Shayne must make the painful choice whether to keep her brother or submit to her mother's wishes. Written by
The story and direction of the movie is truly brilliant! This is one of the most HEARTBREAKING STORY i have ever heard and seen.I never thought adopting a child could be such a complicated one. The story is not made to be a HEAVY DRAMA. It has no intention of making you cry and yet, you will find yourself shedding bucket of tears-- even if you can~t identify with the protagonist. The story is simple and unassuming but turns out so be so unusually sad! You should not miss this movie.
Its different, unique, unthinkable and yet you know its so true.
This is one of the best movie of Maricel Soriano and NIDA Blanca. Their acting is prowess has been never displayed this way--EVER! CAST IS Wonderful AND YES, PERFECT! The Original soundtrack is also a killer:) True tear jerker movie, bring tissue please.
