Storyline

Jimmy is married to the abusive Frank, but she's building a nest egg so she can leave. For a year, she's been deaf as a result of one of his beatings. One night, he pushes her over the stairwell, and she ends up in the hospital. When a charred body in her husband's car is pulled from a pond, the cops want to talk to her, but she bolts for her sister's, loses her savings pass-book, and then learns someone has emptied her bank account. She's goes on the run, with the same cops on her trail, and eventually realizes Frank may not be dead. Getting back her money, facing Frank, satisfying the police, and finding her freedom may be more than she can handle. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

When Jimmy is pointing a revolver at Officer Ramsey in the rest room, and later when she shoots Frankie with the same gun, it is obvious from the frontal camera angle that the weapon is not loaded. Its chambers are clearly empty. See more »

Quotes

County Sheriff #2: [talking to Ramsey about their hard investigation] Yeah... I could never go through what you guys go through, too much bullshit on top of bullshit.

Weak, disorganized plot. Written for an Oprah world.
9 February 2003 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

The plot was really weak and confused. This is a true Oprah flick. (In Oprah's world, all men are evil and all women are victims.)
