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.

Good Movie, but sad.
25 June 2003 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

I saw this when i was home sick one day and thought it was gonna be just another typical lifetime movie, which is fine because i like those movies. It was about an 18 yr. old girl, Diana Moffitt, who after her parents get divorced, gets into exotic dancing by a man she meets at a club(Antontio Sabato Jr.)This leads to prostitution and A.J. starts beating her up. Eventually, she gets in so deep, that she can't get out. When she turns up dead, her mother does everything in her power to seek justice. She knows it was A.J. who killed her daughter, but there is no hard evidence. Good movie, interesting. I felt bad for the mother and the daughter. This was a real story too. Diana Moffitt really was found dead in the late 80s. The real A.J. Treece was sent to jail. **** of *****
