Storyline

An attorney, upon handling an incest case, learns that she was an incest victim by her father from the age of five months to five years. Through therapy, she arranges to confront her father and her mother (for physical and emotional abuse in her teens) and gets nowhere. She is further frustrated when she takes on another incest case, only to have the judge throw it back in her face after the child's testimony of what was being done to her is disbelieved and the abuser apparently doesn't fit the "profile" of one who would commit incest. Her anger mounts upon learning that the little girl of the first incest case she was handling ends up with severe emotional damage because of the judge's refusal to stop the father's visitation, after medical evidence of the incest was presented in court (with graphic descriptions of what took place). Upon learning this news and exploding at the injustice of the system that seems to protect the abusers instead of the victims, she embarks on a crusade ... Written by Anonymous

Heart-wrenching but forceful and definitely true!
9 April 2003 | by (Staten Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Melissa Gilbert portrayed a tortured victim helping others who were in her position at one time. She showed determination, motivation, and support to all women. I actually felt her pain when she relived through therapy the abuse suffered from her parents. I particularly hated her mother who actually did nothing to prevent her husband from sexually abusing her. She was a B----! I simply wanted to kill her, strangle her, scream at her, whatever!!!! She was supposed to be a social worker helping people with family problems. And also, she was supposed to be a mother who is supposed to be nurturing and supportive and she WAS NOT. She gives motherhood a bad name. Her father definitely was NO saint!!! He, too, was a b------! However, I could NOT hate him like I did the mother for some reason. Melissa Gilbert's character was forceful and motivated. She did NOT give up or give in. She took a bad situation, her own inner childhood pain and torment, and turned it into a productive project of helping other young women. She is to be admired. Her performance was believable, that I rooted for her! Yay, Shari Karney!!!
