Synopsis
Touching but melancholy dramatization of real-life sportswriter Frank Delford's book about his eight-year-old daughter's losing battle with cystic fibrosis, with Craig T. Nelson and Bonnie Bedelia as the grieving parents and Gennie James as the young girl. Carol Evan McKeand and Nigel McKeand earned Emmy Award nominations for their script. A similar theme of a young girl being remembered in writing by her father was explored in the TV movie "Mary White" (1977), taken from the book by William Allen White about his daughter's death.
