If you have lots of money, why get married?
18 January 2002 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Good presentation using lots of flashback to good effect. When a bedridden woman overhears a phone conversation which leads her to believe a crime is being planned, a night of terror begins for her. After making a series of calls to various people she begins to piece together a tale of greed and illegal gains involving a cartel of gangsters, the D.A.'s office, her father's business, and her husband. Tense drama with a heart pounding finale.
