When an arsonist strikes the Calhoun household, a single mother and her baby are killed while the only surviving family member, ten year old Billie, is accused of committing the crime. Eight years later, she is attending a hearing for early release only to have it denied to her. She pleads with her guard to set her free because the guard knows she is innocent. Her guard makes it look like Billie simply escaped, and Billie hides out in an abandoned apartment. From there she moves on in her quest to prove her innocence. Her only problem is that everywhere she goes - people wind up dead. She finds sympathy in an attractive young detective who aids her in her quest and allows her to stay with him. Can he save her in the end when she encounters the real killer?

I might be a little biased because I saw this as a ten year old girl, but I really like this film. It's not meant to be a "thinker", it's just meant to entertain - and in that respect it has my vote.

Yes, there are plot holes...

Why was she in a women's prison? How did she know how to drive when she grew up in prison? How come Father Paul looked young enough to be her brother?

Who cares? These are minor details that can't ruin the film for me. Everything that needed to be explained was explained. All the viewer really wants to know is the identity of the killer.

I still find it somewhat suspenseful and fun. It's not meant to be a psychological film, just a fun way to kill time on a rainy Saturday afternoon. In that sense, it does it's job well.
