Storyline

After years of anxious waiting, a suitable heart becomes available for Jill Maddox. It isn't rejected by her body, but feels very strange and seems to change her character completely, mainly more adventurous. She gets visions with clues to trace down her donor, Matt, who died in a motor crash, and contacts the family. It's all too much for Jill's daughter, gifted violinist Amanda, who was okay playing the perfect nurse but now feels lost and betrayed, despite support from her boyfriend Billy.

Christmas In The Heart Transplantland
14 October 2007 | by TurtlequilterSee all my reviews

What I thought was interesting about this movie was that it was about what one's life would be like after having a heart transplant that was successful. In the case of Jane Seymour's character, Jill, was that she became a totally different person. For one thing, she seemed to have inherited some of her donor's genes because she could picture how he perished in a motorcycle accident, and knew what his hobbies were. All this happened during the Christmas season. She even tracked the family down. Her daughter, Amanda, didn't like all these changes that were happening in her mother, but eventually, Jill did return to her normal self, and she and Amanda reconciled their differences, and had a Merry Christmas. Please put this movie on a DVD. It's great!
