Storyline

In February, 2006, young Luke Abbate accepted a ride home from a fellow student following his high-school team practice. In a severe case of irresponsible and reckless teen-age driving, and over the objections of Luke and the other young passengers, the driver lost control of the car at nearly 90 miles-per-hour, spinning off a narrow road and landing in an embankment some seventy feet below. Luke suffered irreparable brain damage, and died in the hospital two days later - just four days before his sixteenth birthday. Written by anonymous

Loving it!
29 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm loving this movie so far and am more than half way through it. Don't pay attention to the haters.If you have a heart you will love this movie. It may not be perfect, but the message is clear. It may not be The Blind Side-but it's a different family.I can't imagine what it must be like to go through what this family went through. I'm a nurse and really appreciate a lot of the scenes especially the ones in the beginning of the film. At least give this movie a chance and make up your own mind. Don't let these negative reviews make up your mind for you without judging for yourself. Believe me, I've seen MANY movies and MANY of them I haven't even been able to get through the first fifteen minutes. This is a good movie. It may not be an Oscar winner, but it is a good movie about a true story, a real family and a community.
