Storyline

Terry Evanshen had a perfect life: at twelve he met Lorraine, his true love, future wife and mother of his three daughters Tara, Tracy and Jennifer, and decided to become an Canadian football star, which the hunk did brilliantly. Then a car accident puts him in a deep coma he's unlikely to survive. When he awakes anyway, Lorraine hopes that his amnesia, which reduces every aspect of his past to meaningless bits and flashes, will also be temporary and takes him home, but the grim prognosis of permanent brain damage causing nasty character disturbance seems to come true, as his behavior is erratic and so aggressive he scares everyone. Are Lorraine's flash-backs to happier days just a cruel memory, or can he learn to become their loving husband and dad again? Written by KGF Vissers

This is a very touching movie
27 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have always liked David James Elliott, but this movie really showed his performance on a really emotional level. He is a man who feels lost and unable to get back to what or where he was in his life. What a powerful and remarkable acting performance. I really would like to recommend this to anyone who has ever felt lost in their life at any period of time. Wendy Crewson really gave it her all as the wife who never gave up on her husband. She has shown what true devotion is and the strength to call upon the Lord at a point in her life when she needed him the most. The girls really did a good job in acting as little girls lost and trying to help their dad find his way back to them. This was one movie that by just seeing the previews, I knew that I didn't want to miss it. There is so much to be learned here. It can be understood and felt in any time of life altering changes.
