Storyline

The bipolar June Baldwin hits her abusive unfaithful husband Tony with a statue and leaves home with her beloved son Sammy. When the police officer arrives, he finds Tony dead with four strikes to the head. June claims innocence but accepts the deal to spend eight years in prison offered by the prosecutor. She leaves her son with her sister Claire, married to the wealthy entrepreneur Jason (Perry King). Eight years later, June leaves the prison cured with the appropriate medication she is using and moves to Claire's manor with the intention of disclosing the truth about the murder of her husband. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Not that good, even for Lifetime
21 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

In Philadelphia, June's husband Tony cheats on her and abuses her (though there's no physical evidence of the latter). One day she has finally had enough and she hits him over the head with a statue. Twice. Then she takes off with their son Sammy; if not for him she could have just left.

The police question June, who doesn't know her husband is dead. June is badgered so much she finally gives in and pleads guilty, fearing she can't convince a jury she didn't do it. At least she only spends eight years in prison; had she been convicted the sentence likely would have been much longer. June's sister Claire and Claire's wealthy husband Jason take Sammy.

When June gets out she is still bipolar but her medication is finally helping. Sammy is in San Francisco, but June keeps in touch. Claire lets June stay in the mansion, and Jason gives her a part-time bookkeeping job at his company. It turns out Jason doesn't think any more of June than most people would; we know the truth, but Jason thinks of her as just an ex-con. And Claire and the landscaper Nick seem to know something about what happened to Tony. June is determined to get answers, so Claire tampers with June's medication, and unfortunate things happen to those who know Tony's situation. Still, June's prison friend Charlie and her cousin Victor help out, and June hires private detective Diane deSalvo.

The mystery is interesting enough, I suppose. Elisa Donovan does a capable enough job. She has beautiful hair, when it looks right. Amazingly, it looks best when she is in jail. Susan Walters has some good scenes (though not THAT good) where she is deliciously evil, but in other scenes she is flat.

I'm not saying it's a bad movie. It's as good as your typical TV-movie mystery, but there's nothing special to make it highly recommended.
