Storyline

Katherine "Kathy" is happily married to businessman Greg Norris and lives in his beautiful home with his about 18-year old daughter Tara. When suddenly a charming young man, who Tara first saw lurking around in the garden, turns up on their doorstep claiming he must be Jamie, the baby son she once gave up for adoption as a teenage mother on her parents' orders, the couple is delighted to meet him. They even take him in as they hear his adoptive parents have died in car accident and he's looking for a place to stay during his business studies just like Greg, to pay for which he held various jobs, even in Rio. The only one who remains suspicious is Tara, who doesn't want to be the kid sister and starts looking for holes is Jamie's story, going trough his things and having a friend examine his past- there are, since he didn't tell the Norris family about his lover who helps him unconditionally with his sinister hidden agenda...

Wayward Son

**SPOILERS** Illogical story about a long lost son Jamie Fisher, Andrew Kraulis,who unannounced and mysteriously shows up at his mothers Katherine Norris ,Linda Purl, home who gave him up for adoption back in Lancaster PA. 25 years ago and before you know it becomes a member of the family.

As Jamie starts to charm his way into his moms heart he also begins to weed into his dads Greg Norris, Perry King, wallet by setting the recovering heart-attack patient up for the "Big One" and then collecting the one million dollar insurance policy on him.

Why would Jamie who has everything going for him, a home a loving family and a future in his dads business, jeopardize all that and even end up on death row for what he's planing to do? thats the most interesting part of the movie. You don't get to know the truth about Jamie Fisher until the spunky daughter of the Norris family Tara, Meredith Henderson, who felt right from the start that this "Jamie" was a bit of a flake and weirdo starts to investigates. Tara comes up with some very disturbing information about him and his exploits. Yes Jamie claimed to be a big time world traveler who spent his time mostly in South America working on oil rigs, as well as his previous residence back in PA; which turned out to be nothing but a pile of horse sh*t.

Together with his unstable, she looked and acted like she was on the stuff, girlfriend Liz ,Magen Fahlenbock, Jamie planned to have the cash from Greg Norris' insurance policy wired to a bank in Costa Rica then check out of the country. There was just one small thing that Jamie didn't expect: wacky and dangerous Liz to find out that he's got only one plane ticket and it's not in her name.

Jamie who has Mr. Norris' million dollar insurance check taken to the bank by Katherine with him tagging alone to make sure that nothing goes wrong. Back home Liz is ready to blow Tara's brains out if anything does before the sweet and smooth talking Jamie does in poor Mr.Norris. At the bank she's spotted by her friend Delia, Sophie Gendron, who feels that something just isn't right and later calls a friend and neighbor of the Norris' for help.

The whole crazy plan falls apart back at the country cottage where Jamie and Liz took the Norris'after the bank switch in one of the most insane shoot-out between the two murdering blackmailers I've ever seen. There's nothing really that good about " Stranger at the Door" but it does hold your interest even though a number of scenes in the film make absolutely no sense at all.
