This film presents a pleasing story of family tragedy and hope.
Martha Evans ( Kristy Swanson) and three children are abandoned by her husband. This guy is the classic case of irresponsible males. He empties their bank accounts and leaves with most of their money, deserting his wife, her two daughters and a step son, to survive on their own. Martha, who is unable to earn enough to support the family, loads up the children and moves north in hope of a better life.
After traveling a log distance, Martha stops at a small town, finds an inexpensive room and secures a job as a waitress in a small 24 hour café. She struggles for days, cares for the children, and makes friends. Meanwhile the children grieve the abandonment by their father and wonder if that means they are not loved and not worthy of care.
Slowly the children adjust and become a family. But their only car breaks down and the innkeeper informs her that she must move as he rented her room to a business. Desperate and without hope, Martha prays for help.
This is a feel good story. The townspeople accept Martha and her children and help her survive.
I recommend this film to people who enjoy family films.
the part the older sister played.
