Storyline

Richard Eason is flat-out filling his late father's shoes as CEO of an east Coast real estate developing company, so he can't spend nearly as much time with mother Annie and daughter Ella as they would like. Annie is dead-set on visiting a place in California where she and her late husband hoped to build their dream house and convinces Ella, who wants to drop out of school and aspires a singing career, to drive along. Ill-prepared but tempestuously stubborn, they embark on an adventurous road trip, where Ella meets hunky waiter Scott Tardy. Learning Annie needs surgery soon, Richard gives chase. Written by KGF Vissers

You had me at "Betty"!!!
30 September 2020 | by paulski1-1See all my reviews

Seeing Betty's beautiful smile is all that I needed. Yet, she offers so much more. Yes, the story is simple, like a Hallmark or Lifetime film, but I quickly could see beyond that sort of comparison. Comforting for a family to work through sad memories and create hopeful and happy futures together. I could easily watch it again and again. Each time, I bet I will learn a new lesson.
