Storyline

Drama, based on a true story, about a teenage girl, Diana, who inadvertently is sucked into the world of prostitution by her boyfriend-turned-pimp, A.J., whom starts abusing her and eventually murders her. In the aftermath of her death, her mother, Gayle, makes the crushing discovery of how the law views prostitutes (Diana's murder cause was listed as NHI, or "No Humans Involved"), plus the police is unable to charge A.J. with her murder due to a resulting lack of evidence. While working with police to land A.J. into prison on another related charge, Gayle meets another one of A.J. prostitutes, April, and begins learning things from her about A.J., plus helps her get out of the trade and back into her mother's arms.

Gayle Moffitt: On some nights when I can't sleep, I'll go for a walk down to the red light district and watch the prostitutes there. Sometimes I'll see one that looks like Diana from the back, and part of me hopes that when she turns around, it'll be her again, but I know deep down that that will never happen.

28 November 2003 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I just watched this movie on lifetime. I liked it alot. The movie looked liked it was made in the mid/late 80s. it was very sad though. its one of those movie's that leaves you feeling sad when its over. But, I do recomend this movie, if your a fan of lifetime type movies.
