A 16 year old girl takes up with a charming young man who quickly shows his colors when he beats a friend simply for walking with her and then goes totally ballistic after she tries to break up with him.
A successful asset manager, who has just received a huge promotion, is blissfully happy in his career and in his marriage. But when a temp worker starts stalking him, all the things he's worked so hard for are placed in jeopardy.
An abused woman discovers that the dream man she married isn't who she thought he was. She and her daughter try to escape (aided by her previous boyfriend), but he pursues her relentlessly. Fearing also for the safety of her daughter, she decides that there's only one way out of the marriage: kill him. Written by
When Slim has a monologue in the car and Gracie is sleeping, actress Tessa Allen was actually asleep. The film makers tried while Tessa was awake but because they wanted to do long shots of Gracie sleeping it was hard for a young Tessa to keep her eyes completely still for the hour it took to film the scene. Instead, they waited until she had a nap and her mum picked her up and brought her into the car to film the scene. See more »

I'm not sure why some viewers compare this with "Sleeping with the Enemy", although there are some similarities, however small.
This is a a story that starts with a fairy-tale wedding, then a birth and all seems to go well. But then Slim finds out that her husband is seeing someone else. Of course, he reassures her that she's the only one that matters.
Then, when physical abuse starts, you know she's got to get out. Which she does, with some difficulty. And she starts to run from place to place, always knowing he's somehow tracking her.
The part I most enjoyed was seeing Noah Wyle play a creepy guy, so different from the roles he usually plays.
And then the end, with Slim getting martial arts training and sneaking into his home to prepare to "finish him", which she does by happenstance. I don't usually enjoy that type of violence, but was happy to see a woman stand up for herself and her child.
Enjoyed it a lot!
