Storyline

An Alberta small-town police chief officially finds no suspect in the bloody stabbing to death of 'working girl' Jane McGill. Her daughters are adopted two years later, trough his friend Alvin, by a London couple who don't qualify yet for a correct procedure. Grace, the eldest, behaves viciously to Tess Palmer, who gave up her psychotherapist job to become their full-time mother, yet as sweetly as her little sister to new father Alfie Palmer, a struggling entrepreneur, but aggressively too toward his son Charlie, from an earlier marriage, and his grandmother. Whe the strain on the marriage becomes unbearable, Tess takes Grace to Alberta to examine suspicions about a dark past arisen during written overseas contacts. Written by KGF Vissers

This Is a gripping story that will have you glued to the screen. A couple decide to adopt there family through a illegal agency , after trying desperately for children of there own for a long time. But they have bitten off more than can chew when they discover the young children's mother was murdered The eldest of the children witnessed the whole thing and is seriously disturbed by whats happened, The adopted mum actually fears her own life, but this new mother is not about to give up on her without trying to discover the mystery behind her mothers death in hope this will help the young girl I highly recommend this film you will be kept guessing until the end ,And the end has a twist in its tale. Gripping from beginning to end.
