Do you know how many other children will live years past their life expectancy because of me?
29 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

A renowned actress was about to get an ice cream when his husband was shot dead outside the parlor. She recently adopted an african toddler and she became the target of paparazzi and organizations because she spent only few days in the african Country instead of the couple of years needed. This illegal adoption led detectives to the biological father, an illegal immigrant whose son was actually took away from him in an unorthodox way by the cover girl. Detectives and attorneys were all shocked when the father at prison figured out someone replaced his son with another baby and DNA test proved it. Where is the missing child? Buried in a dark spot in a park by the nanny (Anna Chlumsky) with several broken bones, but the plot is not over yet.....

Money can buy everything, but not your freedom. You can't be above the law only because you are rich and famous. At the end Rubirosa confessed to McCoy she wishes she could have a child. Producers didn't want to have issues with an african nation, so they made up a phony Country called Mamuno.
