Synopsis
When his dad loses his job and starts thinking about suicide, and mom announcing she's leaving, a teenager decides to take matters into his own hands and embarks on a series of desperate ploys to encourage the old man to want to live. At first called "My Life, Your Life," the film was erroneously promoted as being Peter Fonda's television movie debut -- ignoring the fact that he was the star five years earlier of Alistair MacLean's "The Hostage Tower."
