Great movie, have been searching this title for years
1 May 2004 | by butlersolarSee all my reviews

I'm writing for my husband. For as long as we've been together, 7 years, I've heard the plot from this movie and at least once a year I've searched for it. Despite being a TV movie the plot and twists were riveting. Carrie Mitchum gave a memorable performance, but Lisanne Falk's choice in handling her conscience was a sticking point in the telling of this story. How each character is forced to deal with the situation in her own way and in her chosen career path was a unique storyline that I've personally not seen before or since this movie. Renee Estevez (Martin Sheen's daughter) gives an outstanding performance, great lead in for her role on West Wing. Hope all who watch enjoy. We're looking forward to purchasing it on DVD.
