A woman accustomed to always having the last word in every situation, finds herself trying to "rescue" her grandson, Jesse, from being signed away to grow up in an institution for Down's Syndrome children.
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. Written by

Patty Duke plays an amazing character who will stop at nothing to see her son's murderer brought to justice and to gain custody of her grandchild.
Duke does the role complete justice. No matter what gets in the mother's way, she is not stymied. Her eye never veers from the ultimate goal, and she keeps at it until she wins, channeling the anger over her son's death into positive action. You truly root for her all the way.
Patty Duke has made so many TV movies that it's sometimes difficult to sort them out. But her work is always outstanding and usually, so are the films. I sometimes wonder if that's because of her or if the stories are really that good - I think it's a combination. She has excellent taste in roles. One of the reviews mentioned that she was robbed of another Emmy. In my opinion, she has been robbed of many. She is always worth watching.
