Nancy is found guilty and sentenced to the gas chamber, but her attorney manages to get her conviction overturned.

But today is Nancy's birthday. She has allowed Michael and Missy to go out to play in the back yard. Nancy opens the newspaper and is stunned to find, in the local section of the paper, her picture ... Written by Todd Baldridge

Extremely Boring
11 August 2000 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

This movie is extremely boring and very slow-moving. It is also rather discontinuous and disjointed. The acting isn't terrible, but the lack of plot movement ruins any effort. Badly in need of better editing. The worst movie I've ever seen.
