Becca had it all: beauty, a successful fiancé, and the job of her dreams. Everything was going according to her plan until the day she was diagnosed with breast cancer. In the blink of an eye, her entire life came crashing down around her. The fiancé ran off with some new fling. The dream job wouldn’t wait for her to get better. The toll cancer took on her body made her feel like less than a woman. Broken and alone, she refused to leave the house. She wanted cancer to finish what it started. But in her darkest hour, she found a mysterious ray of hope in the most unlikely of places. From independent studio Kelly’s Filmworks, a new film based on the novel by Mary T. Lennox.
With October being breast cancer awareness month, this was a very appropriate movie to review. Becca is a young woman whose life falls to shreds when she is diagnosed with breast cancer. It was hard to watch her be so mistreated by her fiance', her mom and others during what was the hardest time of her life. It was also not difficult to see that she hardened her heart and decided to hide away.
Her brother reaches out to her by buying her a computer to try to reach through her shell. He encourages her to try to try one of her former loves: genealogy. When she does she finds a link to hope that she thought was completely lost.
While the plot and ending of this movie were very predictable, it was still an enjoyable movie to watch.
Watching this email made me wonder how many Becca's surround us on a daily basis?
Thank you to Echolight Studios for providing this DVD for review.
