A naive young soldier shocks his family when he returns home on leave accompanied by a worldly older woman whom he introduces as his wife. The young man's mother strongly disapproves of the relationship, and urges him to seek a divorce, but he is blinded by love. The marriage fails, but the young man is brutally murdered before the divorce is final. Convinced of his wife's guilt, his mother embarks on a one-woman crusade to bring her to justice.

Patty Duke and Martin Sheen...
4 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

shine in this film, which is a disturbing account of a young serviceman, murdered for profit. His young wife ("Dusty"), well-portrayed by Alexandra Powers, may have been the culprit. She has a baby too young (Duke's grandchild) and decides that she is tired of being an army wife, and becomes a prostitute in Honolulu.

When Duke's son is murdered, she suspects the worst. After protracted legal problems, Duke eventually wins a minor victory, seeking justice for her son's murder. Apparently as a resident of Alabama, she only has influence due to the fact that she is in a small town, and must hound and harass the district attorney. Charles Dutton, Jr. is also very good as the detective who tracks Dusty and the grandchild, discovering they are living in squalor in Oklahoma, collecting money from the murdered husband's army pension.

Patty Duke is amazing, because she always transcends material, engaging the audience. While this film was based on a true story, a few liberties were taken, but you will still be interested in the outcome. 8/10.
