NotesA woman has spent 20 years devoted to looking after her father who had a stroke. Then she discovers she has cancer. Her only chance of survival is a bone marrow transplant. The only suitable donors are her sister whom she hasn't seen for years, and her sister's children. This has to be worth seeing. Reviews have been very encouraging.
