It’s hard to be totally honest with your children because you always want to protect them. If only Charlene had been honest with her son Kel about her illness she might have had a better life. Her former college professor and friend Arthur also had no idea she was so ill. Arthur wasn’t honest with her about his weight problem either. When Charlene tries to get together with Arthur after two decades they both hesitate and it turns out to be too late. Her son Kel is confused but in the end he does the right thing.
