It's a classic tale of a long-lost parent trying to reconnect with their child, but with a twist. Our protagonist, a loving mom, is caught in the middle of a dramatic situation involving her 15-year-old son and his estranged biological father. The bio dad, who hasn't been in the picture since the boy was one, suddenly wants to establish contact, but the teenager isn't having any of it. Now, the mom is left to navigate this emotional minefield and make the best decision for her son. 💔
