Cameron Diaz and Jason Patric play the role of parents of a daughter scarred with the leukemia cancer drug. The only way they can save her is to reproduce another daughter with the power of point by point match with their elder daughter’s DNA so that she can be her permanent dona-tor in the years to come.
What follows is a heart-melting display of love and sadness, hope and despair, optimism and depression. All the scenes make you dive into the hope and pain of the family faced with this irreversible truth of what God throws their way.
While their daughter continues to get sicker with the chemotherapy drugs and needles, her sister continues to donate all that she can to help her survive. This continuous obsession of her family, especially her mother (Diaz) to anyhow make her survive eats up Kate (the daughter) more and more. She cannot see her family killing themselves inch by inch by revolving around her life alone.
In the end she asks her sister for a favor, a favor that we cannot weave around at first but one that flows a permanent stream of genuine tears from all who watch this film.
