Sometimes, love is not enough? Kirstie Alley, the award-winning star of TV's Cheers, plays a sassy, outspoken single mother whose life is dominated by her brain-damaged son in this superb drama. Sally Goodman has spent 16 years caring for David. Previously believing that she would never be of use to anyone, she now feels that he gives her life purpose. She meets his every need and has persuaded herself that she is the only one who can look after him, an attitude that has driven away her husband and daughter, and threatens her relationship with her sister and her new lover. Just as she attracts people with her vibrant, wisecracking personality, she also repels them with her outspokenness. But as time goes on, can Sally really continue to live a life based more on her needs than on David's needs for the future?
