A poignant story of a young gay AIDS patient and his relatives.
5 February 2004 | by (Point Roberts WA) – See all my reviews

As the father of young man who died of AIDS before we really knew much about this disease, I was deeply moved by this touching story of a young man and his sister and their relationship to their mother and grandmother. This is the kind of story for which Hallmark Hall of Fame is noted and they did not fail again to bring us some of best of TV drama available.
