—– FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3, 8/7c on NBC —–
Stressed-out high school teacher, Trish Fahey (Nancy Travis) can’t understand her students’ lack of effort and why their parents don’t seem to care. This is especially true of Justin Kremer (Cameron Deane Stewart) a popular, skateboard loving, basketball star who is under-performing in her class. Trish has him suspended from the team and quickly chalks up the situation to bad parenting.
Her perspective dramatically changes when Trish meets Molly (Yara Martinez), a mysterious stranger intent on helping her see things differently. As a result, Trish learns a powerful life lesson that affects everyone she interacts with. No one is left unchanged!
A real, authentic Family Movie Night on network television! What a concept! Thank you Wal-Mart and P&G!
This movie embodies the age-old axiom, “You never truly know someone until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes.” Or, in the words of songwriter, Joe South, “…If you could see you through my eyes instead your own ego I believe you’d be surprised to see that you’ve been blind. Before you abuse, criticize and accuse, then walk a mile in my shoes.”
Trish Fahey is a hyper-charged over-achiever wife, mother, and teacher. She judges everyone by a very high standard. It takes a car accident and a stranger named Molly who appears in the seat right next to Trish to turn her life, and with it her view of others around her, upside down. As a result Trish gets a totally new perspective on the lives of her family and friends.
Every viewer, no matter how old or young, can learn something by taking “A Walk in My Shoes.” We are delighted to award this family friendly drama the Dove “Family-Approved Seal” for all ages.
