See this movie before you go into "witness protection".
12 December 1999 | by (Lahaina, Hawaii) – See all my reviews

This is a movie which should be seen by anyone who thinks that the "witness protection" is a free ride for criminals. Very well done by everyone, it shows the gut wrenching changes that must be made by the "witness" and his/her family.Entertaining and disturbing it should be seen by all.
