Typical TV-movie thriller
30 May 2008 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

Lauren and her father Stan move into what they believe is a nice neighborhood. What they don't realize is that a murder was committed on their property, leaving a little girl without her parents. The father, Garrett, was killed, and the mother, Amanda, was sent to prison--apparently as the result of incompetent or lazy lawyers. Stan, who was a prosecutor before developing health problems, now teaches at a local college, and he decides to find a way to reopen the case. Brian, another teacher at the college who becomes friendly with Lauren (and possibly more than just friends), would prefer that the case not be reopened. In fact, his behavior when he is alone resembles that of a stalker.

Through flashbacks, we are shown the events leading to the murder as well as the traumatic discovery of the body. We also see Lauren's memory of the tragic death of her own daughter Stephanie, who would have been the other girl's age had she lived. Lauren keeps Stephanie alive through her children's book series. She is also shown at a book-signing and one of the girls there is absolutely adorable, though she has just one line.

There's nothing that special here, though the leading actors do a good job, particularly Daniel J. Travanti as Stan. I did not recognize him, though I saw very few episodes of "Hill Street Blues." But the real standout performance here comes from Lisa Zane as Brian's ex-wife Roxanne, who only he can see. She is wacko! Could she actually be dead and haunting him, or is he crazy? Well, we know from the start that something's not right with him.
