| Moving story of story of family riven by tragedy
This poignant tale relates what happens when an apparently happy family is struck by tragedy. This movie reminds me of "Ordinary People" (which excellence, for me, it equals), except that there are a couple of twists toward the end...just as the family seems to be recovering from the tragedy, the strongest member begins to crumble, and we learn that, perhaps, the family wasn't so well-knit, after all.

This Hallmark Production is further enhanced, believe it or not, by its commercials...they promote Hallmark cards, of course, but by enacting sharp vignettes of "relationships" these miniatures, are works of art, in themselves, brief, yet profound, each capable of expansion to a t.v. movie, nay, a t.v. mini-series, of its own. A thoroughly entertaining two hours!
