Storyline

Although Roxy left town more than fifteen years ago, her memory has never faded. Her expected return starts to impact a number of lives, including that of her former partner Denton Webb. But it is Dinky, the adopted daughter of the Bossettis and ignored by most of her classmates as a strange loner, who may be most changed. She is convinced she is Roxie's secret child. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Bad Teen Soap
22 September 2002 | by kenandrafSee all my reviews

Bad teen soap movie about high school missfit and her small town life.Below average production and the good acting by Winona could not save this one too much.Leads one along to a promised climactic end but does not deliver.Only for fans of missfit teen trouble dramas,big fans of teen movies and Winona fans as well......
