Cathy leaves home--but not really
6 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After viewing a poster on student life overseas, Cathy is relishing the idea of studying in Buenos Aires, when one of her girlfriends suggests her to do so; stipulating that her adopted family wont really miss her. Cathy then sets about to disprove her friend's theory. But later she misinterprets her family's encouragement to study in South America as a ploy to get rid of her. Cathy really doesn't want to go. As a result she fakes her shot record, thinking that would disqualify her for foreign travel; not knowing that Natalie knows what inoculations Cathy has had. This makes the family suspicious. The result: Cathy learns that blood is thicker than the waters of the ocean.
