Really Sweet Poignant Story Very Timely
31 August 2006 | by emmeline01See all my reviews

For anyone who's ever had to deal with immigration this story will tug at your heart strings. A young girl is preparing for her 15th birthday. Her father she finds out is an illegal so she works to help him out. Boy, they don't make television like they used to. This was a really good story that was clean. Why won't Hollywood make decent film like these anymore?

There are a lot of good life lessons in this show. I recommend this to anyone especially parents with children who want to show them wholesome shows without all of the sex & violence in today's movies and television.
