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

Absolutely beautiful.
16 November 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I found it heart wrenching and heartwarming; I cried and I laughed. Well put together and of course having favorite actors/actresses added to the excellence. My heart went out to Terry and his family. I felt the desperation and helplessness that was expressed probably from having experienced the aftermath that my brother went through after a truck accident left him paralyzed. It's getting harder to find movies these days that leave a profound effect on viewers like myself but those that are based on true life events when they're presented as well as this one leaves me hopeful that more will come. Thank you so much. Absolutely beautiful!
