Change of Plans
AN AUDIO SNAPSHOT REVIEW
In the made-for-TV movie Change of Plans, Sally and Jason Danville are a happily married couple. And part of their happiness is based on the fact that they nether have, nor want, any family to weigh them down. Sally is piecing together a flashy professional singing career. And ex-fighter pilot Jason has landed an aeronautical engineering gig that suits him to a T. But when Sally's missionary friend dies in a plane accident and gives the Danvilles guardianship of her four kids, things suddenly tip sideways.
It's not that 16-year-old Jordan and her three adopted, interracial siblings aren't great kids, it's just that Sally and Jason are sure they're not built to be parents. Family doesn't fit their lifestyles at all. And they don't know anything about bedtime stories or suitable teen boundaries. They'll keep the kids for a week or so, but only until the agency can find them a home.
But a lot of things can happen in a week or so. And learning the true meaning of happiness is only one of them.
This Walmart and P&G Family Movie Night presentation is a fun pic that emotionally draws viewers into the struggle of loss and uncertainty, and the abounding joy of finding a loving family.
