A Little Help
When Laura's husband dies from a heart abnormality that goes undetected by an ER physician, she is a deer in the headlights. Her intrusive mother and sister pressure her to send her son Dennis to a private school and force her to file a malpractice lawsuit against the doctor who treated Bob.

This places Laura in the middle of two huge lies: at his new school, Dennis tells the other kids that his father was a fireman who died in 9/11. Further, Laura knows the malpractice suit is based on false pretenses.

Bob didn't tell the ER doctor what he was doing when he had previous heart symptoms, because he was with his lover. As Laura struggles, she finds one person with whom she can connect and communicate -- her sister's husband.

Starring Jenna Fischer, Chris O'Donnell, Kim Coates, Lesley Ann Warren, Brooke Smith, Rob Benedict
