Storyline

In suburban Reston, Virginia, George Washington University American History professor Michael Faraday is still mourning the death of his wife, FBI agent Leah Faraday, after three years. His inside knowledge of the agency colors what he teaches in his classes. Although on good terms with Leah's ex-partner, Whit Carver, and the agency in general, Michael wants the agency at least to acknowledge their responsibility in her death in the line of duty. Michael is moving on with his personal life, he being in a serious relationship with his former teaching assistant Brooke Wolfe. Although he likes Brooke, Michael and Leah's nine year old son, Grant Faraday, may not yet be quite ready for Brooke to be a permanent part of their lives. It is only in helping adolescent Brady Lang who he sees in medical distress that Michael meets his new neighbors, Oliver and Cheryl Lang, Brady's parents. In the process, Michael and Brooke becomes friends with the Langs, as Grant and Brady become friends. ... Written by Huggo

Compelling thriller with amazingly un-Hollywood politics and excellent performances.
22 July 2001 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

An excellent cast puts real suspense into this story of the 'Banality of Evil' and how the need for closure in horrific events overwhelms deeper exploration into their causes. Also delves into 'psychological karate' where a person's thoughts and ideas can be used as a pivot to get them to act against themself. A very complex, yet easily understood, plot which is made compelling by an excellent cast. There is no waste in the script.
