She is sent to prison for a crime she didn't commit. Eventually, she got out. She then set out to get back at the people who framed her. She would try to rebuild her life but her prison record would always be a hindrance. She would be offered a job, stealing jewelry.

Their paths would cross when Tracy after stealing what she was contracted to, meets up with some policemen, one of whom is Jeff.

Hugely entertaining mini-series
15 August 2005 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

One of the most entertaining mini-series ever in my opinion.

Tracy (Smith) gets sent to prison by a slimy crimelord and his attorney who were more or less responsible for her mother's death, and she is sentenced to 15 years. Planning to escape, she winds up getting pardoned and avenges her own injustice as well as her mother's. Having lost everything of value in her previous life, she embarks on a totally new one as a master thief, trained by mysterious Richard Kiely. She meets Berenger, who's in her line of work as well, and the two strike up a working relationship and a romantic one. Hot on their trail is a slimy detective (David Keith) who seems to have a personal agenda concerning Tracy.

This is a hugely entertaining globe trotting adventure courtesy of writer Sidney Sheldon. Madolyn Smith and Tom Berenger are simply sensational in the lead and the rest of the cast are very good as well, particularly Liam Neeson as a french policeman. Seasoned television director Jerry London keeps this 5 hour marathon continually entertaining, with twists and turns at every corner.

There's a dramatic shift between the first part and second, the first one dealing with Smith and Berenger separately but in the second one the fun really gets going as they team up and stage on grandiose heist after another. The David Keith side story adds a psychological twist which is mostly well handled, but not explained well enough.

If you like mini-series you'll love this one. Really deserves a red carpet DVD treatment, as it's nearly a trip down memory lane 'cause these mini-series aren't what they used to be. This is one of the all time best.
