Nancy Mckeon did a great job!
12 December 1999 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This movie was full of suspense also leaving you on the edge of your seat towards the end it had a very meaningful ending unlike most movies. Nancy plays a sister who feels trapped in her sisters shadow. She was jealous of her fathers attention given to her sister feeling it was her fault their father killed himself because she never went to get her sister when he called for her..later in life she felt alone isolating herself from men it seemed afraid of hurt and rejection, her sister on the other hand has her hands full with a disturbed ex who feeds on Nancy's weakness to get to her sister..
