Storyline

Devoted FBI Agent McKenzie "Max" De Ridder has recently lost her mother, who was her very best friend and greatest champion. In the wake of grief, McKenzie's behavior has become erratic and she soon finds herself suspended. McKenzie, frenzied, drinking and lost, escapes to the small town she used to visit on "Star Adventures" with her late mother. Soon after McKenzie arrives in town she meets Freddie, a young special needs boy with Fanconi Anemia (a rare disease that comes with a short expiration date).

She is taken by how unaffected he is by the reality of his condition. McKenzie forms an undeniable bond with Freddie and an unexpected testy, then loving relationship with his mother. The small town tangled relationships and mother-daughter dynamics reveal themselves, as each woman traverses ...

Unfortunately
1 July 2019 | by simonactonSee all my reviews

I wanted so much to love this film. But it somehow misses. The story is disjointed and the sex scene seems gratuitous yet the actresses are appealing. I want a great story told well. The premise here is good but not enough to build a movie around. Conn's previous films were memorable. This one won't be.
