I first saw this film late one night when I was almost falling asleep. I saw that one of my favorite actors was in it so I stayed up. The film starts with the character Danny, sitting in jail ready to go to court. When he arrives at court, he is called up to testify and the film goes backward, and he tells the story. But there is no narration. The film is about Frankie, a young girl of about 19 years of age, who kills her mother because they are always fighting, and so she could inherit all the money. Nobody knows that it was her who killed her mother, because she covers it up. She meets a guy named Waldo, who lies to police for her and they end up living together with all the money. They argue alot because she is spending all the money. Waldo threatens to tell the police that she wasn't really with him, the day her Mom was killed and Frankie gets nervous so she tries to manipulate her brother to kill him. I won't tell you anymore. But it's a great film. Kristy Swanson(from Buffy the film) stars as the manipulative sister of Danny, who has an evil side to her. The film keeps your intrest, because it keeps you in suspense. You are also always wandering how the character of Frankie(Kristy Swanson) can be so horrible and manipulative. The story line was great, and I thought the acting was excellent from Jeremy London(Danny). Kristy Swanson gave a great performance. I really recommend the film, it was great.
