Granted, divorce is a major life event in many kids' lives, but it wasn't until the 70s and 80s that the high divorce rate gave rise to a heightened awareness of detrimental effects of splitting up on the kids. What we have here is an afterschool special expanded and sexed up for nighttime consumption. The story follows the break-up of several marriages and the resulting side effects on the kids, utilizing quite a few familiar faces from 70s TV (Susanne Crough, THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY'S winsome tambourine-banger Tracy, turns in a rare post-PF role). Billy Dee Williams, Barbara Feldon, Kim Fields, and Lance Kerwin all appear. As their families disintegrate, the kids react in different ways. One kid overeats, another begins failing at school. Kim Fields becomes a pre-teen alcoholic, and Lance Kerwin and a girl whose parents are also breaking up have sex and then eat Chinese food while wearing kimonos afterward! Scandel! Outrage!
