This movie was so predictable that I figured out the mystery within seconds. Actually any one who has seen The Wizard of Oz will figure it out quickly. A woman named Joanna Burke played by Sherilyn Fenn has an accident while on an outing with her daughter. When she awakens, she is told she is someone else, Sarah Randolph. Sarah Randolph turns out to be a murderer and of her own son. The biggest giveaway comes when she returns to her neighborhood on a couple of occasions. Neither the mailman nor the newstand salesman recognizes her. So I took a weak guess and it turned out to be the right guess. I said a weak guess because I was hoping the writers of this story wouldn't settle for a hackneyed storyline. Silly me.
To make matters worse, the story goes on and on as if to say, "We Know You Know The Ending -- But You'll Never Guess How We're Going To Get To It" This movie should have ended an hour earlier. It's a typical tv movie of the week with the usual one dimensional characters that fails to show the dramatic range of a good supportive cast: Steve Harris, Rena Sofer, and Thomas Gibson. If this had been a dramatic short, at least the viewer could have been spared.
