A husband and wife lose their 4th child to sudden infant death syndrome. As they struggle to deal with this tragic event the marriage begins to unravel. As their marriage falls apart their children suffer the strain of their parent’s broken relationship. God sends an angel to help restore their marriage and to bring hope to the family. Through the angels intervention the mother realizes that she is not alone in her feelings of loss, and that God through the loss of His Son knows exactly how she feels. The mother through the acceptance of God’s will and knowing that she will one day be reunited with her baby reconciles with her husband and the family is restored.

Dove Review

This movie is about an angel who falls to earth in the form of a teenage girl. She loses her memory but is compassionate and has powers to help the family she stays with and people she meets at school. The production value is a bit lacking in this movie, but the heart is in the right place.

The family is grieving over the death of a child and the parents each handle it differently which causes a clash between them. The word “idiot” is used several times and there is typical teen humor among the teens but the film has a good theme of trusting in God for healing from the hurts and disappointments of life.
