Synopsis

When a young girl is diagnosed with cancer, the crisis causes her concerned father's work to suffer and he is fired. Unemployed and without medical insurance, he searches for a new job to no avail. A senator learns of the family's plight and encourages them to testify to help convince Congress to pass the Family and Medical Leave Act, designed to protect individuals from losing their jobs as a result of a family medical crisis. As their daughter's condition becomes terminal, her dream of meeting President Clinton is achieved with the help of the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Inspired by actual events.
