Storyline

Since they met the first time in boarding school as little kids, it was obvious that the orphans Kay and Dave would become a couple. But at sixteen, Dave foolishly attempted to rob a bank with a water pistol, and ended up in jail for eight years. Meanwhile Kay was sent to foster parents, where she met the successful business man Mike, whom she married and bore two kids. Now Frank is released from prison and immediately starts wooing Kay again. Although she's happy with Mike, she can't withdraw herself completely. Old memories and her husband's jealousy make her spend more and more time with him. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Quite frankly, a gem of a film
25 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For me this film turned out to be a very good example where one may do well not to rely on what people say about the film itself, about the director, or of his other films. As of my review the film is rated 3.7 and looking at the breakdown no idea on how that was arrived at. More 10s than any other single rating. A happily married woman with small children finds her life upended when her love from the past drops by to see her. Excellent story, well acted, credible. Cast well chosen. Not a film where you know what is coming next. This is a very early Zalman King film and if you are looking for erotica you won't find any here. Very nicely done.
