Storyline

Behind the facade of a perfect suburban life lies a secret and insufferable nightmare: a woman and her children are subjected to their father's unpredictable temper and violent outbursts. Fearing for their safety and perhaps their lives, the frightened mother and her children make their daring escape, assuming new identities and going underground to hide from their tormentor. However, the family's refuge from danger is only temporary...in order to be truly free from fear, they must bravely come out of the shadows and confront their enemy face to face.

Typical TV Movie
26 January 2002 | by (slc, utah) – See all my reviews

Abusive, black-hearted husband is the bad guy, and the loving mother is wronged by the unfeeling court system. However, AMAZING performance by Justin Isfeld as Jason, the son. Truly a wonderful performance for a child actor so young.
