Storyline

Elizabeth is married to Thomas, a prominent doctor. He has been abusing her. One day while out with a client, John Davis, he tells her that he was hired by her husband to kill her. It seems that she wants a divorce and Thomas would rather see her dead than let her leave him. Now John observed her before actually doing it and discovered that she was not the woman her husband described, so he decides to help her. He wants her to pretend to be dead so that when he gets his payment, he could get Thomas to incriminate himself on tape. Though uncertain at first, she realizes that he is telling her the truth. But she finds it unbearable to be away from her children and Thomas doesn't pay John right away. So she has to pretend to be dead longer than expected. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Great movie
4 August 2003 | by (Home) – See all my reviews

A while ago, my cousin and I became completely obsessed with the Lifetime Movie Network. And every night at nine o'clock, there would be a Lifetime movie. There were so many of them, there would be a new one everynight. So one night, At the Mercy of a Stranger came on. I really don't think you can judge a Lifetime movie as you would a really high quality movie. Lifetime movies are movies where big actors started. They're not the greatest, but they're very fun to watch when you're relaxed and looking for a good time. I personally love them.
