Synopsis

Expecting a Miracle
A troubled young couple discovers that sometimes you must endure great hardship to discover where you really need to be in life after heading for Mexico on vacation, and finding themselves hopelessly stranded in the dessert. Pete (Jason Priestly) and Donna (Teri Polo) were eager to start a family when their fertility tests revealed they could never have a child of their own. Devastated, the couple accepts an invitation by one of Pete's colleagues to spend some time at his vacation home south of the border. Shortly after crossing into Mexico, however, they take a wrong turn down a rough road, and their SUV breaks down. Thankfully, a road sign indicates that the town of Dommatina is within walking distance, and before long Pete and Donna are safe in the company of kind strangers. Though they'd planned on getting their vehicle repaired as quickly as possible in order to reach their intended destination, a chance encounter with a benevolent priest (Cheech Marin) and a young boy leaves the wayward couple wondering if their true family had been waiting for them in Dommatina all along. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Miles from Nowhere
A high school football star clashes with his coach and his father when he joins the track team to accomplish a goal set by his late best friend. When John is killed in a car accident, Cameron (Andrew Lawrence) blames himself for the tragedy, and vows to accomplish his friend's goal of setting a new record on the mile run. Cameron's altruistic mission is jeopardized, however, when he runs into opposition from both his father (Treat Williams) and his coach, who feel that may be throwing away a future in football by switching sports at such an inopportune time. But the harder they work to convince Cameron he's wrong, the sharper the young athlete's focus and determination becomes. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

The Nanny Express
A widowed father and a hard working student find their professional arrangement complicated by some very personal feelings in this uplifting romantic comedy featuring Stacy Keach and Dean Stockwell. David Chandler (Brennan Elliot) is a single father in need of serious help; his nine year old son Ben (Uriah Shelton) and teenage daughter Emily (Natalie Dreyfuss) seem intent on driving away every nanny the hapless father hires, and in order to keep things under control dad's going to need an extra pair of hands to help out around the house. Enter Kate: a devoted student who divides her time between earning her teaching degree and acting as caretaker to her ailing father. Kate needs a job, and she's smart enough to beat the Chandler kids at their own game. Not only that, but Kate also understands exactly what the kids are going through since she too lost her mother when she was just a young girl. Before long, Kate has managed to break though to Ben, but winning over Emily won't be nearly as easy. Later, as Kate begins making headway with Emily, the nurturing nanny and overburdened father begin to realize their feelings for one another run much deeper than either had ever anticipated. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Soldier Love Story
The pen-pal friendship between a young boy and a homesick soldier blossoms into something much more meaningful in this warmhearted tale of family and courage. Sgt. Vince Carerra (Johnny Messner) is serving his country overseas when he starts a correspondence with Jared Marshall, a young boy still reeling from his parents' recent divorce. Estranged from his father, Jared confides his pain in Vince in between colorful exchanges about baseball. Upon returning home, Vince meets Jared and his mother Dana (Lori Loughlin), and soon finds himself falling for the newly-single mother. Before long, the trio has formed a family. Their momentary bliss is soon shattered, however, when Vince discovers he's about to be redeployed, and realizes his role as a father figure will soon take a backseat to his role as a soldier. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
