Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Based on a true story and originally aired as a Lifetime Original Movie, this moving drama zeroes in on a family that is nearly torn apart when the 15-year-old daughter announces her pregnancy. Each person in the clan reacts differently to Tina's predicament. Mother suggests that children shouldn't have children. Tina disagrees and insists on keeping the baby. Her father, already upset by other issues, moves out. Tina's little sister finds herself increasingly ignored and resentful. Meanwhile, at school, Tina's friends drift away as her tummy gets bigger, and though her boyfriend at first promised to be supportive, he then chickened out. Forced to attend a special class for unwed mothers, she meets several others in her situation. Her biggest help during her pregnancy is her 19-year-old friend Laurie who had her baby two years before. But while supportive, Laurie also shows Tina how difficult and exhausting, single motherhood can be.
