Donna May is a grief counselor who suddenly finds herself grieving and alone after the hit-and-run death of her husband, Robert. Soon after Robert's death, Donna's estranged adopted son, Kevin, appears at her house, claiming he has cleaned up his act and wants to regain her trust. Donna reluctantly takes Kevin in, although they haven't seen each other since a violent fight that she and Robert had with him five years earlier when he was caught stealing money from them. It doesn't take long for the aggressive side of Kevin's personality to emerge. He claims that Robert had been cheating on Donna, and prevents her from leaving the house or having visitors. Donna's credit cards and checks go missing and Kevin won't allow her to answer the phone. When Donna's lawyer is found dead after Kevin accused him of being a fraud, she becomes convinced that Kevin killed him and attempts to escape the house, in what may prove to be a struggle for her life.

Good movie until near the end when continuity is abandoned
16 November 2010 | by (Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

Ninety-five percent of this movie has the makings of an entertaining thriller that could have held its own on the theater circuit. Once the villain is identified, tension slowly builds toward a highly anticipated climax. But suddenly, the nail-biting script goes terribly wrong and we are dumbfounded as the credits begin to roll. The reason for this just HAS to be that the original story was edited for TV. It seems fairly obvious that the producers ran out of time and decided to halt the excellent story-line and leave viewers wondering how the so-called "ending" could be possible. My wife and I were stunned and insulted .. enough to make me rush here and vent my anger. It's film-making like this that gives Canadian movies a bad name.
