The best work Adam Rich ever did!!!
31 July 2000 | by (Mansfield, Ohio, United States of America) – See all my reviews

This very short (only 50 minutes) "made-for-television" movie (it was one of the first "Showtime Originals" if I remember correctly), is the story of a young blind boy (played by Adam Rich) who sets out to clear his mother (a museum executive) who is accused of stealing the world's largest diamond (the Zertigo Diamond). As someone who is disabled, and who has many friends who are either "legally blind" or "totally blind"... I can attest that Adam Rich's protrayal of a blind boy is "absolutely flawless". Whoever trained him and taught him his "mobility training" did a wonderful job. For someone whose acting career was way too short (by the time he learns to act, he gets himself in trouble with drugs and alcohol, thus destroying his growing career), who could have gone on from "juvinile actor" to "adult actor"... this is the best work he has ever done. It shows that he can truly act (not just look cute and recite lines like he did on "Eight is Enough" and "Code Red").
