Storyline

Wealthy but plain heiress Stephanie Harper marries handsome tennis player Greg Marsden, and thinks she has found true love. That is, until her husband makes a play for her best friend and plots to get rid of Stephanie so he can take her money by pushing her off a boat and into the waiting jaws of a crocodile. However, she survives the attack and, although horribly disfigured, spends months undergoing surgery to have her face repaired by a brilliant plastic surgeon. However, the now beautiful Stephanie no longer looks like the woman she once was. She returns to the city under the name Tara Welles to seek vengeance on her husband, who has told everyone she was taken by a crocodile, and is now waiting to inherit all of her money. Now, she can have revenge... Written by Sam Yeo <yosam2010@hotmail.com>

Revenge In The Land Down Under
10 October 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stephanie Harper is newly married to Greg Mardsen, a washed up tennis pro. Little does she know that her new hubby and her best friend Jilly are having an affair. She also doesn't know that her hubby is after her money, and he tries to get rid of her by means of throwing her to the crocodiles at her estate called Eden. The keyword is "tries" because she survives (Unknown to everyone)and makes her way to a clinic. After a surgeon fixes her face, she returns...as Tara Welles, the newest fashion model on the scene. She also returns to settle the score with her hubby and best friend, who has become a lush. This is a great 80's mini, and one of my all-time favorites. I wish that it would hit DVD so I could add it to my collection.
