Stressed by a recent move and being a stay-at-home mom, Teeny takes out her bottled-up rage on her daughter Robbie. Only the help of her friends, family and counselors can stop her from harming Robbie and herself.
The main attraction of this film for someone would be if they're a fan of Cheryl Ladd, like me. Or if you identify with the subject matter.
Cheryl puts in a fantastic performance. Be warned though, the film has a rather depressing tone to it. Things get worse and worse for Cheryl's character. She begins with a mild dependance on drugs from the hospital she works in as a nurse. But when her sister dies and she loses her job, she battles with alcoholism and relies on drugs more and more. She really hits rock bottom before realising she needs help, and is not accepting of the help she gets when she ends up in a hospital. Things are wrapped are rather quickly, and so you are not left with a good feeling that she turned things around for herself. We are told through a voice over. A "Five Years Later" scene would have been more effective in terms of how you feel when the film ends. But this is no major flaw for the film.
Cheryl Ladd is at her best her, with heavy going material. In other roles she has had she has not had to be so rude to her friends and people who are trying to help her. She plays a woman who relies on drugs, and when her life stops becoming manageable, it completely takes over. As I said at the start, a film for Cheryl fans, and an excellent one at that.
