Ann, 23 years old, lives a modest life with her two kids and her husband in a trailer in her mother's garden. Her life takes a dramatic turn, when her doctor tells her that she has uterine cancer and only two months to live. She compiles a list of things to do before she dies.Written by

Originally the film was to feature Ann recording tapes for her father and for Dr. Thompson, in which she forgives her father for being absent during her childhood, and tells Dr. Thompson that his seeing patients as people isn't a bad thing before thanking him for keeping her impending death a secret. The ending montage was also supposed to feature a video clip of Ann's dad making shoes for his granddaughters from prison with tears in his eyes. These things never even made it to the filming stage, probably because of the length of the production itself. See more »

If you are in the mood to cry and be moved and touched then this is the movie for you. Even though it has a very sad story line...it doesn't leave you extremely depressed like most sad movies do. The movie is very well done both artistically and acting wise. The main character is so beautiful but in a very real way. I think that's one reason why it is so easy to relate to this women and her life. She is a very strong women through her last few months before she knows she's going to die, which I find to be very refreshing, compared to just watching a sad, depressed, angry women dying. When I tell people what this movie is about they usually don't seem very enthusiastic about seeing a movie about a women who knows she's going to die, but let me just say it is so much more than just that! I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone that is sensitive and deep and compassionate. I loved it. It also makes you really look at your life and makes you want to live life to the fullest. Give it a try!
