Terri Hansen is discovered in the desert beside the blackened husk of her car which contains the charred corpse of her husband. When forensic evidence makes her out to be her husband's murderer, she quietly protests her innocence, but makes no effort to mount a defense. Terri doesn't expect to be believed. Was it self-defense or murder? While Terri acts strangely indifferent to her own fate, her attorney tries to reconstruct what happened. The moral ambiguity and the unfathomable mysteries of the human heart are just the sort of thing her attorney had hoped to leave behind him when he left big city law. In flashback, we see Terri's story. Written by

I got bored with this movie about ten minutes into it, but suffered through until the end because had absolutely nothing else to do at the time.
To those who think this is Randy Quaid's "early" work: Randy has been around since the early 70's (who HASN'T seen "The Last Picture Show"?!?) and this actually is some of his later stuff. Also, he usually does NOT do comedy, save for the "Vacation" series.
The emotional vacancy of the acting is what destroys the movie; also, the scenes overall were just flat and lifeless. None of the characters appealed to the viewer at all, except maybe for the sheriff who really seemed to care about Teri's case.
If you haven't seen it, don't waste your time.
