Gina was in the car during a hideous car crash that killed her parents. She lost her eyesight when she was a teenager because of the accident. She is married to James and they live in Bangkok. Gina depends entirely on James to help her in the outside world. She usually doesn’t leave their apartment alone. They hear about a cutting-edge and highly experimental cornea transplant that could give Gina her sight back in her right eye. The optic nerve was too badly damaged in her left eye. Gina does get her sight back and she is overwhelmed by colors. She hasn’t seen her husband and her own reflection since she lost her sight. Gina starts to go out into the world again now that she has vision.
It seems that James is very happy for Gina to regain her sight but he also feels slighted that she doesn’t always needing him now. James and Gina are trying to have a baby but they haven’t had success yet. There are a several twists in this film after Gina regains her sight. I think there are too many scenes showing Gina’s impaired and distorted vision. We can get the picture without seeing it over and over. There is also a very unusual and unnecessary series of scenes when James and Gina visit Gina’s sister, her husband and their son. 3* (This movie is OK)
