Storyline

A typical American family - photographer father, two talented daughters, Michelle an accomplished commercial artist with a clear upward career path. Then she has an auto accident, and the head trauma leaves behavioral changes. The part of the brain involved in impulse control is damaged (but the lesion is not visible on the usual CAT scan, and psychological tests are not done). Michelle has no control of her sexual impulses, and changes to 'a thief, a liar, and a whore' as her eventual therapist puts it. The family is broken apart, her sister and mother leave, but the father remains convinced that the daughter he loves is in there somewhere. It is a long and harrowing road to understanding of her sex addiction, and the end is not certain, but hopeful. Written by Bruce Cameron <dumarest@midcoast.com>

Mike Farrell & Jill Clayburgh were Fantastic!
10 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Found this Lifetime TV film very interesting and captivated my attention from beginning to end. Jill Clayburgh,(Eve),"Vallin",'01, was the mother in this picture and her daughter, Missy Crider,(Michelle Widener),"Gigli",'03, had a very bad car accident which caused her to change her personality completely. Michelle had a strong compulsion to have sex with everyone and caused a tremendous Monster for the family to try and solve. Mike Farrell,(William),"The Clinic",'04, was the father and went to all extremes in order to help his daughter find herself mentally in this WORLD. This is truly a story about the great love parents have for their children no matter how they turn out in life.
