Storyline

A woman experiences strange feelings and fleeting memories about her childhood after the birth of her first child. She seeks help from her estranged sister and realizes these memories connect to the childhood sexual abuse that the sister endured. The woman's marriage and family life begin to deteriorate, along with the once close relationship she enjoyed with her father. Eventually, she realizes that she too was abused. After facing the truth, she realizes that her brother's young daughter is often left in the care of "grandpa" and is also being abused. With the typical resistance of family members to deal with the proof, the adult children finally face their very prominent father and their distant mother, ending her denial. With both guilt and courage they band together and prosecute their father for the sexual abuse of his granddaughter. This is an above average movie about the insidious nature of childhood sexual abuse, being passed from generation to generation. Though, the ...

Deep
17 July 2002 | by 1fortheroadSee all my reviews

I watched this movie on Lifetime the other day, and I liked it. It was very deep, dealing with some issues that aren't usually aired out for everyone to see. I admire these people who put together this movie for speaking out about this kind of abuse, because it happens today, and it is, as one character in the movie is quoted as saying "A heinous crime." It's a movie that offers some kind of hope--that it's never to late to speak out, and it's worth it, no matter what. I like it, not because I found it entertaining or intriguing, but because of its straightforwardness. Good work.
