Summary

  • Home fires burning: A series of seriocomic vignettes linked to the impact of World War II on a proud family and its town. Set in a southern hamlet between July 1944 and July 1945, the story revolves [around?] the family's patriarch, Jake Tibbetts, the feisty publisher of the local newspaper, Jake's compassionate yet spirited wife, Pastine, their sensitive teenage grandson Lonnie, and Francine Tibbetts, the wife of Jake and Pastine's estranged son, who appears suddenly one hot summer day, unannounced, alone, and very pregnant
  • For the love of Aaron:Following psychiatric hospitalization, a divorced mother must oppose her ex-husband in a fight for custody of their young son
  • A son's promise: A Son's Promise is the touching, true story of an iron-willed Georgia boy who accepts the burden of a man on his young shoulders. Seventeen-year-old Terry O'Kelly (Rick Schroder) is fatherless, and his remaining parent, his mother, is dying. Anguished, the soon to be orphan makes a surprisingly grown-up decision: Terry promises to care for his six brothers and vows to keep the family together - no matter what. Steadfast to his word, Terry takes on the struggles of parenthood, which yields some difficult and unpleasant surprises. But when the family suffers a series of grim misfortunes, including : starvation, deprivation, and natural disaster, Terry's will is tested to the limits until he reaches his breaking point. Tempted to just walk away from it all, will Terry break his vow, or will he continue to fight against all odds and keep his family together as promised?
