Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Kevin Dobson and Michael Tucker play best friends and next-door neighbors whose relationship and lives are torn asunder by tragedy. Tucker's 5-year-old son (Bradley Michael Pierce) accidentally falls into Dobson's swimming pool and is drowned. Dobson is racked by guilt, while Tucker's moods swing from hostility to depression. Ultimately the men and their families are reunited by their shared memories of the lost boy. Casey's Gift: For Love of a Child deserved a larger audience than it received; the TV movie had the misfortune to be telecast in most markets opposite the fourth-season opener of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
