White woman Sara Kate (McGovern) marries Gaten Hill (Hudson), a black widowed father. Shortly after their wedding, Gaten dies in an auto crash so Sara has to take care of Gaten’s daughter, Clover (Harris). Problem is, she and Clover have not exactly bonded and several of Gaten’s friends and relatives object to her being Clover’s guardian.

Dove Review

“Clover” is a movie about being lost and racial differences. Clover has been the only other person in her father Gaten’s life for a while and believes it is her job to take care of him. But when her father takes a new bride, she feels left out. But the real problems begin when on their wedding night while traveling, an accident occurs; Sara Kate is injured and Gaten does not survive. This leaves Clover with a new mother she does not really know and Sara Kate with a daughter, plus a family not in favor of the situation at all.

The two different cultures find that they are not so different after all, and the most important thing is to help Clover through the grieving process. They find that no matter how you look at things, black and white are the same, and everyone needs time to get through the feelings of sadness, anger, and sorrow. Plus, family must help each other through these types of events.

This film, however, cannot be approved by Dove due to content that is outside our guidelines.
