Storyline

The story revolves around Kathy, an assistant D.A., Richard, her lover, who is also the chief medical examiner, and Dr. Highley. Kathy's investigating the supposed suicide of a woman. It seems that she has been going to Dr. Highley for some kind of treatments but when side effects begin to surface, she plans to see another doctor but Dr. Highley kills her before she does. Presently, Kathy's working under the assumption that the woman's husband was the one who killed her, and Dr. Highley also wants to see her to treat her for some injuries she sustained in a car accident. When in reality Dr. Highley suspects that she may have seen him on the night he killed the woman, because she was in the hospital but on medication therefore not certain of what she saw.

A must for Guiding Light Fans!

Set at the Guiding Light hospital, this movie uses the soap stars in an interesting way! Although the story is not focused upon the GL stars, it offers a peak into their lives at the hospital. Lauren Hutton is very effective as a strong-willed woman having to make time in her life for an operation. Nice plot twists at the end will keep you guessing as to the outcome. Joe Ponazecki as Detective Wyatt is perfect casting!
