Plot summary
11 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kimble is Jim Fowler, a driver for a fuel oil company in a rural area. He sees that schoolgirl Jenny Ammory, played by actress Gina Gillespie, has left her books by the side of the road, and he tries to bring her the books and help her.

Jenny frequently misbehaves then lies to get out of trouble. She explains her tardiness to school, loss of her homework, and her torn dress by claiming that Kimble chased her into the woods and tore her dress. She also accuses Kimble and her teacher Emily Norton (actress Pat Crowley) of improper behavior at the school.

Although Kimble could leave town, he stays to help Emily at a town meeting, and only then learns of the more serious allegations against him. Kimble faces severe danger from a lynch mob ready to get him for his alleged actions of child molestation of which, of course, he is completely innocent.
