Television hasn't been the same since Brian's Song broke everyone's heart and an unofficial taboo against downer plots; the nets can't stop making "life-affirming" dramas about crippling accidents and fatal diseases. This tells the true story of a young singer paralyzed by brain surgery. Penelope (Coming Home) Milford is affecting as the valiant Kathy Morris and Leonard Nimoy is weepily convincing as her troubled surgeon.
