The stepping stone for a woman . . .
20 December 2000 | by (L.A.) – See all my reviews

Great direction, great acting and a thought provoking story. This movie is a must see for every woman and man. it deals with the underlying dependence of a woman on man especially in marriage and how men tend to take undue advantage of it. But there comes a time for decision in every womans life .. . .
