I felt so sorry for Jacqueline and purely loathed her mother. How can a mother treat her child like she is a stranger and not want to express any love for her. But what was even more depressing is that through it all Jacqueline tries to win over her mother's affections and love by basically following in her footsteps. Her father wasn't much better of a role model what with raising her in bars and all but at least he was there for her as best as he could be. Just an emotional story filled with a young girl's loneliness.
I had an idea about what was wrong with Duet but I turned out being wrong. I was totally in shock when I realized what her disfigurement was and have never heard of that before. I felt really bad for her because she seems like such a beautiful person in so many ways and all she really wants is the same as everybody else to love somebody and be loved back but everytime she thinks she has found Mr Right once they get into bed the guy freaks out over her situation and leaves her feeling sad and depressed to the point that she has almost given up on finding her soul mate.
This is a wonderful story of learning to love yourself no matter what other's think. Bottom line is you got to love yourself and be comfortable with yourself before anybody else can and Duet finds out love was just a heartbeat away.
