A woman tracks down her ex husband
18 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

this is a great film to inspire single mums to get what they need to support there children as does Donna mills she tracks down her husband who she believes is dead and then makes him all the child support her owes on hell of a good film!! he then ends up paying like over thousand of dollars for leaving her with three children to support and i think he ends up in jail for using a false identity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is just such an inspiring film to watch and this women pat Bennett did she fought against what she believed is right and made sure the man who left her to raise the children on nothing but borrowed food from the neighbours pay for what he did!
