Storyline

Alex L'Hiboux, a ruthless mercenary-cum-vigilante, is known as 'the Owl' because he never sleeps. His insomnia comes from a combination of a medical disorder and recurring nightmares of the murder of his wife and daughter. Alex is approached by Lisa, a young girl whose father is missing. She awakens painful memories of his own child, but after some persuasion from a policewoman friend, he agrees to help her. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

Trivia

The original 48 minute version which aired on CBS in 1991 is credited to director Tom Holland. A longer edit which includes deleted scenes (opening with Holland himself as a mugger/rapist who is foiled by The Owl) and lengthy montage sequences was created for the international market and is credited to director Alan Smithee, a pseudonym frequently used when directors are unhappy with a finished film.
