The harrowing true account of Steven Staynor, who was kidnapped by a perverted pseudo-priest and his lackey during the 1970's. As he gets older, he realizes that he needs to try to make an escape and get back home.
An abused battered wife has had enough of husband beating up on her. Everywhere she turns for help, there's not much anyone will do. After he rapes her one night, she sets the bed on fire with him in it asleep.
The woman who played the mother was so believable... I couldn't take my eyes off her. This woman can act! A story like this, even though it's true can play out really corny and overly sentimental. I found this woman to be just what I imagine an intelligent, broken hearted woman would be. The sadness in her face, the desperation... even as she played with her sons, or cleaned the sinks and floors at work.. the sadness never left her. Her tenacity at seeing the politician and convincing him to look further... that is inspirational. The intellect of the actress comes through in this story. Amazing. I imagine the child still seeks a relationship with the "mother" who stole her. I hope there is a follow-up on how the families are fairing; and that Luz did not take Pedro back... he wasn't much of a father to the two boys during their trying times. Amazing story!
