I have had this movie on VHS for many years and was happy to see it released to DVD. Megan Follows of Anne of Green Gables fame does an excellent job in this moving story of survival, love vs. hate, strength, and shattered dreams. A pretty heavy story, this movie (I feel) is a great time piece that captures a moment in the past very well with the set, costumes, cars etc. My favorite scene is when Megan Follows is riding the food cart at her job - a moment of true bliss for this troubled soul. Great movie. I can watch it again and again.
