rated for 0 + years
A heart-rending drama in which single Dad James Norton seeks a new family for his young son. John (James Norton) is 35 and loves his 4-year old son Michael dearly. The mother left the family immediately after the birth and since then the window-cleaner has brought the child up by himself. When John learns that he only has a few months to live, he has only one mission: to find the perfect family to adopt Michael. But how can he be sure after one short meeting? And does he know his son well enough to make the decision on his behalf? While John struggles to find answers, with the help of a young social worker he becomes open to solutions he would never otherwise have considered.
