Fantastic Movie and great acting.
17 January 2014 | by createme22See all my reviews

I just watched this movie a few minutes ago and do not understand the picky reviews or the story description that doesn't really define the movie.

This is not a spoiler because you find this out at the beginning of the movie.

Because of a husbands jealousy, his misguided jealously, a family get torn apart. He throws her, his wife, out and takes the child and tells her to never return. A little girl believes her mother is dead and builds a shine to her as she idolizes her.

The husband the and wife run into each other later by ten years, where the wife now works. They had never divorced nor are seeing anyone else. He begs her to come back for just for the daughters sake. As I said the girl built a shine to her mother so you can imagine ..... I will not tell you more. Just seek out the movie and watch it yourself. Great movie!!
