An unconscious pregnant mother's fate lies in the hands of her divided family - can they make the right decisions, and can they ever heal?

I Will Always Love You, Sweet Pea

A mother's promise to her little girl that when the new baby arrives, life will not change, only get better. The mother - Sarah - pours her heart into seven letters, one for every word.

Five months into her pregnancy Sarah collapses and the beautiful life she dreamt of turns into a nightmare. With Sarah's future, and the future of her pregnancy, in their hands, her husband and sister fiercely disagree about what the doctors should do. And the crisis reveals devastating fault-lines in the lives of the entire family.

All the time the clock is ticking. The medics need a decision. Can her family get beyond the fog of grief and anger to figure out what's for the best? And can it ever heal?
