Closer to God: Jessica's Journey

Rating:
★★★★★

Jessica is a teenager dying from cancer and all she wants to do is live her life before she dies. But her loving mother, Rose, is overprotective and is finding it more than hard to let go. Then Rose's father, Jessica's grandfather, who was sentenced to jail when she was still a kid, suddenly comes back in their lifes asking for forgiveness. He wants to be a part of Rose's and his grandchildren's lives, but Rose is not so easy to forgive. He, however, quickly develops a close relationship with Jessica when he helps her "live" and for instance teaches her how to drive. Because of this growing relationship between grandfather and granddaughter, Rose learns to be more forgiving as well. And when Jessica's biggest wish is to attend prom, Rose will do anything to make that possible.
