Christine said:
This movie (which aired on Lifetime Network) is about a woman who finds out her son has committed suicide and doesn't believe he would kill himself so she investigates what happened the night of his death, hoping to uncover the truth. She teams up with her daughter and eventually the mother of one of her son's friends-- and while technically, her son is a man, and they do talk about him, they also talk about telling the truth, his death, and how to get through the grieving process.
