4 out of 10 Honest drama with real heart
Eamon from Meath, 20 Jul 2010
This deals with 5 days in the life of a family. % days, years apart that marker turning points in their relationship and made them the family that they ultimately become. The real strenght with this one is that it never becomes too sentimental or schmaltzy. Real people, real situations, real family. Well worth watching.
