Storyline

Maureen is an Irishwoman, happily married and living in Germany. Or so she thinks. When her husband dies, she finds that not only had he debts, but was also a bigamist, having had a second wife and family in Ireland. Shocked and angry, she travels there to meet the other family. And she learns that they have troubles of their own, the worst of them being that the other woman's young son is suffering from leukemia and a suitable bone marrow donor is urgently needed.

Good human interest for the most part, but ending dragged.
29 August 2000 | by accurateSee all my reviews

An interesting and entertaining story of a family that discovers that the husband and father has had a secret life, which unfolds after he dies of a stroke. The wife finds that her husband had another wife and a young child.The story moves between Germany and Ireland and deals with the relationships between and among the two families. A crisis involves them all in the climax to the story, but it seemed to drag out a bit needlessly. Overall, worth a viewing.
