Beautiful story how our lives are so fragile

This was an awesome movie although very sad to watch. Awesome character development with real sorrows and regrets that involve both families. GEt kleenex ready and this one is worth your time. Very well done.

If you feel like you've done something in this life that needs punishment then this is the movie for you. This movie artistically wanders for 45 minutes before you find out the source of the grief. You assume there was a teen car accident but that isn't it and it doesn't come out for 45 minutes. This movie is sad and it just drags on. The mother of the lost child does an excellent job but that's all the good I have to say about this one.

This movie was well done, but I have to say the saddest Hallmark movie I have ever seen. They really dove in and dealt with a hard topic. If you are a mom or teen who babysit this may be too hard for you to watch. I debated stopping watching it because it hit to close to home but glad I finished it but boy did I cry.

This was a good movie. It's about a woman who is haunted by her past but trying to start new.

Get ready to cry
Verified purchase
I love Amber so I knew I would at least like this movie. It was only an hr and a half though so it went by pretty fast and it was cut short too soon. But the actors, directing, and location were on point.

Well done, but sad

If you need a reason to cry, or are just in the mood for a depressing movie, help yourself to this one. It is well done, the character development is excellent, and the story unfolds in a way that keeps you glued.
