SUMMARY

Offbeat drama about a youngster forced to live in a sterile isolation unit because he was born with no natural immunity to disease. Starring John Travolta, Robert Reed and Buzz Aldrin.

Based on actual events, this TV movie became part of another true-life tragedy when John Travolta's lover, Diana Hyland, who won an Emmy for her portrayal of his mother, died of cancer within a year of its release. The role of a teenager born with an acute immunity deficiency was something of a risk for Travolta, who was then cutting a dash as Vinnie Barbarino in the sitcom, Welcome Back, Kotter. But his combination of courage and vulnerability does him credit, while Randal Kleiser (who would direct him in Grease) avoids undue schmaltz in depicting his relationship with neighbour Glynnis O'Connor.
