Surviving synopsis

Lonnie (Molly Ringwald) and Rick (Zach Galligan) seem to be complete opposites, at first glance. A survivor of suicide, Lonnie is introverted and ill at ease around her parents, Lois (Marsha Mason) and Harvey (Paul Sorvino). Rick, meanwhile, is sunny and charismatic. But appearances can be deceiving, as their families learn when the teens begin a romance. Upset about Lonnie's influence on Rick, his parents forbid the pair to see each other -- with tragic consequences.
