Inspired by a story that appeared on "60 minutes" in 1978 about Joy Ufema, a nurse dedicated to treating the terminally ill, Linda Lavin turned it into this TV movie for her Big Deal, Inc. production outfit, teaming with Tyne Daly, playing Joy's psychologist friend and confidante. Coincidentally, another "60 Minutes"-inspired story turned up not long afterwards as the TV movie "Thornwell."
