Storyline

Because Grace's husband Craig is having an affair she starts drinking. One night Grace witnesses a man attacking a girl; she helps her to the hospital but does not want to be a witness in court because of Craig, thinking that he would lose his reputation. Only when the mother of the girl appeals to her, Grace puts herself in contact with Lt. Lawson from the police department. During the trial Grace identifies Bremer as the thug but at the same time she is being asked questions about her private life. When in the end Bremer is set free, he is out to chase Grace.

Fairly satisfying thriller, but not exactly Dostoevsky
7 July 1999 | by (JACKSONVILLE, OR, USA) – See all my reviews

One really hopes there are women with the courage of Patty Duke's character, who is under threat of attack by a psychopath, and that there are concerned cops like the Lieutenant in this story. Sadly there certainly are wimpy husbands and sons-in-law like these in the film, and psychopaths, too. Good cast and better than average editing for modern films are part of the package. If your standard is Dostoevsky, you won't be satisfied, but if you like a story about a courageous lady, it's a nice 88 minutes.
