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

horrified at this attack.

i only remember this movie vaguely but i am so glad that Theresa was able to set up a support group for victims of violence. i was horrified she almost died at the hands of this obsessed fan, and i am ashamed to be Scottish as he is also this nationality. she was just getting her confidence together when he stabbed her. i am so glad she survived. the man saved up his fare from welfare payments...did his family not take board money from him? he must have been pretty well off. i hope he never gets parole for she will live in fear. he is very very sick.
