Sara (Cameron Diaz) and Brian (Jason Patric) live an idyllic life with their young son and daughter. But their family is rocked by sudden, heartbreaking news that forces them to make a difficult and unorthodox choice in order to save their baby girl's life.

The parents' desperate decision raises both ethical and moral questions and rips away at the foundation of their relationship. Their actions ultimately set off a court case that threatens to tear the family apart, while revealing surprising truths that challenge everyone's perceptions of love and loyalty and give new meaning to the definition of healing.

  • 5 stars "I bought this movie 3 years ago and have viewed many times. Each time I watch this I get something new out of it. The actors are superb, particularly Thomas Dekker, Abigail Breslin and Sofia Vassilieva. This movie is a cancer eyeopener, very emotional,very human. I personally would give this picture 10 stars!! It is a must see for folks who complain about small things. When you have your health, you have everything. So people--quit complaining!!!!!!"
