For housewives only...

Let's be clear. I comment this film made for TV only because no one has done it yet. Nothing special. Based on actual facts, as described in the plot line, the story of a woman accused of her husband slain, imprisoned, escaped, and caught again. But in the mean time, she married to a very dedicated guy who believes in her. A real sleeper, only for women staying at home during the afternoons whilst their husbands are at work. Everything is predictable, but it's not a crap.

Yes, it's a surprise for me to see no one has talked about this film.

What could I say more?

I guess there was some movies like this one, nearly the same story, I mean. This sounds familiar to me.
