I can only top Kaagaard's regret by saying I wish I had recorded the second hour. I recorded and saw the first hour of this excellent story, but I have not seen the ending; so I don't know how it comes out. I can only wait for reruns or for it to come out on video--which I suspect and hope that it will. (Third alternative: it's based on a novel so I could find and read it.)
Kaagaard is right about the acting, though I would add that I was watching the competition between Christine Lahti and Nicholle Tom to see which one was going to out-act the other, and it was close. I liked that you could sympathize with both mother and daughter and at the same time feel that they were both obviously wrong about some things.
