Based on a true story that is both heart wrenching and heartwarming, this is a film about loss and forgiveness as a family struggles to heal after a reckless driver causes a fatal car accident. Dean Cain is perfectly cast as the father Bruce, so caught up in his own grief and anger that he fails to address the needs of his grieving sons. Bruce goes through extraordinary lengths to pursue justice, but then, when justice is at hand, he discovers forgiveness is what may actually be needed in order to break free from the pain.
