** Spolier Warning **

I watched this movie, and was moved by it - i thought the story was great in it, i liked it ..

the story .. a women "Shannen Doherty" is recovering from a domestic violence relationship, only her former boyfriend is not happy with her

  • and she leaves him so he then sets of trying to get her. He then


tries to have her killed, but she ends up unable to walk, she is then upset by not being able to walk as she is trying out for some run. she then sees an ad on the TV and wants to help out for free. She then learns how to walk - her boyfriend is finally caught. it ends with a very happy ending.

this movie displays some of Shannens best acting skills, and the soundtrack to the film is great. a very good job done, by the cast and crew of the film.
