The Deep End of the Ocean

The Deep End of the Ocean Based on Jacquelyn Mitchard's 1996 deeply moving novel, this family drama revolves around every parent's worst nightmare: losing a child. Michelle Pfeiffer plays Beth Cappadora, a loving, devoted mother who juggles the demands of caring for her family with a career as a photographer.

With her three small children, she arrives at a Chicago hotel for her 15th high school reunion weekend and, when she glances away for a moment, her three year-old son disappears in the middle of a crowded lobby. Despite a desperate search, he vanishes without a trace.

This tragedy has a devastating effect on Beth, her husband, and family, but, eventually, their lives return to some degree of normalcy -- until, nine years later, a 12 year-old boy knocks on their door. Could it be he?

With the help of a tenacious police detective, they unravel a tangled web leading to a reunion which, in turn, raises another emotionally wrenching dilemma. The boy has no memory of his biological family, having been raised by a loving, adoptive father. What should they do?
