Based on the short story by Louisa May Alcott, the acclaimed author of Little Women.
Recently widowed Mary Bassett (Helene Joy) and her 3 children have hit difficult times on their farm. Things are so bad this year that they cannot even afford a turkey for their Thanksgiving dinner. Suddenly, Mary's wealthy and estranged mother Isabella (Jacqueline Bisset) has come to visit. Although she finds a kindred spirit in Mary's eldest daughter and budding writer Tilly (Tatiana Maslany), Mary resents her mother's attempts to help them out of their financial difficulties.
In the end, more than money will be needed to heal the emotional wounds that exist between mother and daughter in this moving and inspirational period drama.
Actors: Jacqueline Bissett and Helena Joy
