Description by OLDIES.com:

Emily is a well-to-do banker's wife, but her marriage to Ed is suffering from a creeping sense of alienation and despair. Once an idealistic pair, active in church and community, their lives soon fill with distractions that distance them from God and each other. Without realizing it, Emily gradually turns into a dark shadow of her former self. The family pastor urges her to return to the church, to no avail. Only a doctor's death sentence has the power to finally shock her to the core - where there may still be a lingering spark of her badly neglected faith.

Veteran director William Beaudine elicits a powerful performance from Ruth Warrick in this "made for the congregation" drama produced by the Protestant Film Commission. Warrick, who played the first Mrs. Charles Foster Kane in Orson Welles' 1939 masterpiece, Citizen Kane, would later dominate daytime soaps as the archly icy Phoebe Tyler in "All My Children." Hugh Beaumont (Ward Cleaver of "Leave It To Beaver") was a minister in real life in addition to frequently playing one on-screen.

Includes bonus feature - "Second Chance at Second Chance" with film historian Dion Conflict.
