Movie Info

Rebecca Lowman, Susan Roberts, and Jennifer Harlow star in this tender family drama about the black sheep daughter who thought she meant nothing, only to discover her true value while carrying out a curious last wish from her late mother. Donna (Lowman) was never the favorite child, and she knew that. Her sister Lisa was the good seed in the eyes of their mother Eve, a painful truth that was underscored when Eve died and left Lisa everything of value. Despite the fact Donna didn't inherit any money or family heirlooms, she soon discovers that she hasn't necessarily been left empty-handed. Donna has been given a very specific mission: Deliver a series of "presents" to the people who were most important in her mother's life. Now, as Donna sets out on a trip from Texas to Arizona, she will discover that true value doesn't necessarily come from material goods. Whether contending with her abusive boyfriend Glenn, paying a visit to troubled lost soul Vera, delivering messages to her drunken father, her loving brother, or her ultra-religious aunt, Donna soon discovers that the road to her salvation is paved with a mother's unconditional love. Upon paying a visit to the mysterious Mary, Donna discovers a life-altering secret that will forever alter her perception of family.

Audience Reviews for Eve of Understanding

Although the road from bitterness to reconciliation is MUCH too foreseeable, writer-director Alyson Shelton subtly informs the journey with enough human details to keep her debut film emotionally engaging.
