Storyline

Overdomineering female police detective Jamie McDowell still tries to run her 19-year old only son Peter's life although he is a builder who lives alone. She strongly opposes his engagement to Kelly Shaw, who he doesn't know very long, and forces him to bring her to diner, where Jamie and mother Susan Shaw repeat that mistake. After Kelly provoked her ex-fiancé Ray Rankin in a bar 'to test Peter's love' again, they part in anger. That evening the mothers, who went out together, find Kelly burnt to death in Susan's house; an expert clearly concludes arson. To her horror, Jamie quickly finds the evidence seems to point at one logical suspect: her son Peter... Written by KGF Vissers

Unthinkable is correct!
14 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

Apart from looking a little like a "B" movie, I think this movie is a very realistic look an an "unthinkable" event with very good acting. It really puts into perspective the bad choices a person can make when they are under the influence of alcohol. I know first hand how you can turn into a monster when drunk; it's a scary thing. I couldn't imagine being in the shoes of the mother of a murderous son that made a very bad decision. I think the choices she had to make were very realistic. Not all movies have to have a happy ending! This movie teaches you of the dangers of alcohol abuse and sends a very important message to anyone that watches it.
