Steven is a troubled kid from Maine being sent to boarding school. While his father, Richard Portman, is driving him there, they get into a bad argument, and the car swerves into oncoming traffic, killing Richard and putting Steven in a vegetative state. Six months later, Richard's second wife and Steven's stepmother, Mary, is taking care of his every need. Mary is a psychologist who works from home with children and adolescents. She is upset to learn that one of her patients, a deaf child named Tom, is to be transferred to a school in Boston. Later, Mary discusses Steven with her therapist, Dr. Wilson. While she feels guilty, she has decided to put Steven in a home to be cared for because he is no longer there and is just a body..

Hey. It's going to be okay.
Just tell me we're doing the right thing.
No, sweetheart, I know you want to fix this. It's what you do. But we've tried. All right? We've been trying and look where it's gotten us.

And I think the space is gonna be good for him. For all of us. Besides, it's a good school. He'll be home by the end of the summer.

It's crazy how bad movie production has become lately.. What is wrong writers and directors? This predictable movie stuff being produced now days is no excuse to blame on piracy or low sales.. It IS getting Ridiculous!
I practically sat there with my wife at the movies and could dam near predict almost half of what was going to happen past half way through the to the end.
Its a shame because this movie could have went so many other ways to give us something refreshing to look at.. but NO.. The laziness kicked in on this movie like many of the other crap being produced now..
It's getting bad!
