A Son’s Promise (1990) Rated NR

a-sons-promiseBased on the true story of 15-year old Terry, who promised his dying mother that he would keep his six brothers together. Starring Ricky Schroder, David Andrews, Veronica Cartwright.

This is a wonderful, inspiring story of one boy with an iron who is determined to fulfill his promise to keep his brothers together. It is compelling to watch this boy shoulder the weight of life’s great hardships.  It made me question why the mom would burden her one son with such a heavy responsibility. Terry, the son, tends to take too much to heart, but all of those boys had a strength and resilience that not many can claim.  Schroder is the perfect choice to play Terry; he makes this emotional roller coaster of a film totally worth a watch..
