Storyline

Before stalking was a well-known crime in North America, there was Theresa Saldana's story. A drifter from the U.K., Arthur Jackson, flies to the U.S. to seek Saldana out. His twisted mission: Jackson planned to murder Saldana, then request the death sentence for himself so he "could join her in paradise". The psychopathic Jackson confronts Saldana on the street in front of her home, and stabs her violently several times. No one comes to Theresa's aid except water deliveryman Jeff Fenn, who overpowers Jackson and gets the knife away from him. Jackson is arrested & charged with attempted murder...and Theresa Saldana tells her story of terror and survival as herself in this TV movie. Written by medic249a2

An aboslutely terrific film--gut wrenching and inspiring.
25 November 2001 | by (Larkspur, California) – See all my reviews

Theresa Saldana was a Hollywood actress in the late-seventies, on the verge of major stardom having recently played a major role in Scorsese's "Raging Bull". The actress was stabbed in the chest and abdomen 26 times in the streets of L.A. by a crazy man. This is a made-for-television movie about the attack and its aftermath. Theresa plays herself, and I have the utmost admiration for this person I only know as a screen actress for the immeasurable amount of courage and skill it took to survive, to grow from, and to publicly relive this crisis in her life.
