Great Cast, Great Story, 16 March 2001
Author: okramkay from Los Angeles, Califonia USA

Just had the opportunity to see this on late night television and was very impressed with the story and the cast Headed by Ron Masak who has done so many things but I'm sure most people remember him as Sheriff Metzger on "Murder,She Wrote"..Christine Belford, Ben Masters, Howard Rollins Jr. from "In The Heat of The Night", Michael Gross from "Family Ties" and Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis....I am amazed this was never a Television Series...It should have been. If it airs again...Catch it.
