Something great to watch!
7 August 2001 | by BriarDanSee all my reviews

This is one of those great television movies. It shows the power of human courage, love and never giving up on yourself . . . regardless of what other people think of you. Too bad it's sitting on a shelf somewhere collecting dust and not being appreciated. It's scenically beautiful too!! It's a movie for the heart, soul and eyes.
