Storyline

Sydney Carpenter was happy as a housewife devoted to her husband Matthew and their little boy Adam, till they both die in a boat accident. Shortly after she's irritated when local PD Det. Jim Sanders tells her probably nothing can be done, but soon she finds him most helpful, especially after FBI Special Agent Kyle Lassiter insists he walks away from the case. They dig on as she is the target of more criminal visits, discovering Matthew had a dark past and got into the witness protection program, but are told that his staged accident actually killed him...

A Big Surprise
18 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story starts out very calm and quiet in a average American town with a married woman, Vanessa Marcel,(Sydney Carpenter),"Storm Watch",'02, who is offered a career in the film business, which she had prior experiences. However, she loves her husband, Thomas Gibson,(Matthew Carpenter),"Come Away Home",'05 and her little son and decides to stay home and be a good mother and wife. Matthew Carpenter does very little communicating with his wife and they do manage to sleep in the same bed and things do happen, once-in-awhile. It is at this point that I begin to wonder just what is going to make this film interesting and is it going to be a good mystery. As this film progressed further, I was very much in for a Big Surprise and never stopped looking at the screen. Vanessa Marcel all of a sudden appears are a very charming young woman who has an outstanding female figure and is full of life and determined to find out some very dark problems in her marriage. You will enjoy this film and it will keep you guessing right to the very end.
