Storyline

A woman named Caroline reappears after a 14-year absence, during which time she was thought to have died in a plane crash. Claiming to be the daughter of wealthy Paul Carmichael from his first marriage, she explains that she didn't board the plane, and had used the chance to flee her shallow debutante lifestyle. Paul's new wife, Grace, is deeply suspicious of the woman's story -- especially since Caroline stands to inherit a fortune. Written by Jwelch5742

An wonderful story, an incredible film.
1 December 2007 | by sixtracerSee all my reviews

The best made for television film ever. A story that will stay with you forever. A pitch perfect cast brings this great story to life. Stephanie Zimbalist is a revelation. What a shame that she left the world of film for theater.Shawn Phelan is great as her young "brother". Had he not died so young he would have had a great career in films. The movie also benefits from the presence of the great character actor George Grizzard. While the cast is wonderful it is the story so original, so engrossing, so haunting. If you get the chance to see this film don't miss it. While it is made for T.V. it is better than most theatrical releases.
