Soap Opera Mini-Series
31 July 2001 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

Three guys were involved in a rape when they were young. The crime is covered up, and the guys grow up and go their separate ways. One becomes a reporter who gets involved in a fight against the Ku Klux Klan. The second turns out to be a closeted gay man who hides his secret from his wife. The third hides his dirty deeds behind the facade of being a popular pastor. A court case that could destroy all three men brings them back together again. This mini-series was based on a popular trash novel that was out at the time.
