Intense, thought provoking, gripping !!
5 January 2002 | by (Woodstock Ct) – See all my reviews

Lynda Carter plays a caring social worker that is suddenly drawn into a horrid reality of underworld mayhem. Babies are bought from troubled teenagers and then are placed into the hands of unstable parents for a fee of $ 30,000. Can you believe it. The sadest part of all is that this has really happened. Watch this one if you might see it on tv again. While Lynda Carter investigates the businessman believed to be responsible, she puts her own life in danger from the band of villians working for him. She is threatened, manipulated and puts her job in jeopardy desperately trying to crack the operation wide open. Of course, the best reason of all to watch this is that the beautiful Lynda Carter stars in it!!!
