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

At every plot point, the story worked only if you assumed that the people involved were dumb. Sutherland and Fonda, two pretty decent actors, must have really needed the work at the time to put their names on this one.
If for some reason choose to see the bow-wow anyway, I won't spoil it for you, but I'd strongly advise disconnecting your brain, as the plot inconsistencies might cause neural damage if you remain aware enough to start noting them.
We signed this out of the library and didn't pay a cent for using it, and it was _still_ a waste of time.
