A Chicago woman, Maggie (Rena Sofer), returns home to rural Colorado after she learns her father (Winston Rekert) was severely injured in a hunting accident. When she arrives, she comes to suspect it was not at all an accident. Facing the apathetic and suspicious townspeople, Maggie finds limited assistance in uncovering what really caused her father's injury, having to fight for information from everyone (even those close to her). Twists and turns ensue up to the climax.

Sofer carries this engrossing film, with Linda Darlow and Adam Harrington in competent supporting roles. The Secret of Hidden Lake is mostly realistic. Beautiful locations add to the film--I caught this on Lifetime tonight. Not bad.
