A must for Guiding Light Fans!
17 March 1999 | by MrsScottSee all my reviews

Set at the Guiding Light hospital, this movie uses the soap stars in an interesting way! Although the story is not focused upon the GL stars, it offers a peak into their lives at the hospital. Lauren Hutton is very effective as a strong-willed woman having to make time in her life for an operation. Nice plot twists at the end will keep you guessing as to the outcome. Joe Ponazecki as Detective Wyatt is perfect casting!
