Storyline

Jessica has been married to her controlling husband Gary for years. She began dating him at the age of fifteen and has two kids, Maggie and Pete. After some career trouble Gary moves the family out to a New York suburb. Anyway, at first Gary seems like a sweet and loving husband, but after getting mad at some hippie neighbors he begins slapping Jessica and having fits of rage. The abuse only gets worse when she gets a job at a bakery and makes two really caring friends: her co-worker and neighbor Lee, and her boss Walter. Walter becomes more than just her boss; he notices bruises on Jessica's neck and advises her to leave Gary, but she can't; she's too afraid. Soon she starts dating Walter, and when Gary punches Pete repeatedly she realizes she has to be the voice for her two kids; she takes them to stay with Walter. Things only get worse as Gary makes a decision that could send her life crashing down. Written by GasmaskProductionsBooks

Real life movie
5 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched this movie every time it has been on TV. I find it very heartbreaking that this is more common than we realize. As adults we have the choice to stay or leave a situation, a child does not have that same option. This story is based on my husbands sister. The movie is very accurate in it's portrayal of the abuse she and her children endured. Several things were omitted in the movie, but I am not sure where they got their information. This family suffers from the loss of a sister and mother that our judicial system could not save. Hopefully this movie will open eyes and help those that suffer to find the courage and strength to escape a bad situation.
