Fate & Destiny
14 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

James Franciscus plays Paul Dover, who has been troubled with recurrent nightmares of his daughter Emily being shot to death while riding a carousel. He views this as a premonition of the distant future, and so decides to go to the town this will happen in to stop it from happening. While staying there, he falls for the owner of the hotel called Julie(played by Meg Foster) who will play a part in this event, since her fiancée Ed turns out to look like the man who murders Emily! He confronts Ed, where a drastic turn-of-events will propel him even more into his daughter's possible fate...Intriguing episode plays around with fate & destiny with interesting results, leading to a subtle but effective ending.
