What it is

Academy Award®-winner Marcia Gay Harden (Pollock,Mystic River) leads a stellar cast in this Hallmark Hall of Fame production. Harden plays Vicki Miller, a writer whose carefully ordered life is turned upside-down when her 16-year-old nephew, Bobby (The O.C.'s Taylor Handley) unexpectedly arrives on her doorstep. Bobby desperately needs help, having endured 10 years of abuse from his mentally ill parents. Also starring in the film are Kate Nelligan (The Cider House Rules, Hallmark Hall of Fame's Calm at Sunset) as Vicki's mother (and Bobby's grandmother), Thomas Gibson (Dharma and Greg) as Vicki's writing colleague and Tony Award®-winner Marian Seldes (Mona Lisa Smile, Hallmark Hall of Fame's Plainsong) as the imperious Nora Cantata.
