The Hayworth family lives in a Quaker territory in up-state New York. The matriarch, Emily runs the local bank. Years before, she and her family took in troubled, young Jimmy Flood to protect him from his abusive father. Though one of Emily's grown daughters, Janet feels she did not belong in the quiet, devoutly religious community and left the Quakers, Emily believed that her family ties stayed strong. Real trouble comes to the family when Jimmy Flood returns to the house after busting out of prison with the help of Digby and Lester, and he takes Emily's family hostage in exchange for $4 million. If Emily fails to secure the money in time, her entire family will lose their lives. Determined to resolve the potentially deadly conflict in a peaceful manner, Emily calls an emergency meeting of the town friends to work out a solution and save her family. Written by
A tv film about bank terroists who take hostages for bank loot and high profits amid casualties and gun fire. the seeminly typical story is also a drama when one of the terror thugs is a former family member who helps impriison his former family at gun point. This was a interesting film. i saw almost the entire film along wiht the ending. A good tv film. I liked the movie as it was better than most tv fare. I find most tv movies lame except for a few. The winners on the tv movie meter being projects like BILL, WW3 (circa 1983 version), and V, etc. Thyis film was a film about crime and family ties. The writing persepective was left on the political meter with a dash of political correctness, yet this is refreshign from a tv standpoint as we all drown on the far right froth of such tv series as BLUE THUNDER. A intersting diversion for a afternoon. Similar in composition to most LIFETIME films...this film features strong female roles. A good film.
