Storyline

RETURN TO ZERO is based on the true story of a successful couple preparing for the arrival of their first child. Just weeks before their due date they discover that their son has died in the womb and will be stillborn. Lives and relationship forever altered by the loss, they try to cope through denial, escape, alcohol and an affair, but nothing can save their marriage. And that's when they discover that they're again pregnant (from a last ditch 'save the marriage' getaway to Las Vegas), and must come together to face a turbulent and terrifying pregnancy.

Excellent made-for-TV movie, showing all sides of grief
2 October 2014 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

This was heartbreaking and super well done for a made-for-TV movie. It's a true story following a happy couple who are pregnant with their first child when just before their due date, they learn that the baby has died and will be stillborn.

Return To Zero follows that couple through the devastating grief that follows. The pain expressed here is palpable, raw, and so well shown in its many forms (denial, anger, alcohol abuse) We also get a look at how family and friends don't always know the right things to say.

In a last ditch effort to save their marriage (and ignore the Holiday season) our couple take a trip to Vegas which leaves them facing the terrifying prospect of another pregnancy. There's an excellent extended cast here too along with Minnie Driver who is absolutely fantastic as Maggie. 6/18/14
