The drugs don't work
16 February 1999 | by parky-3See all my reviews

Do two wrongs make a right? Is blood thicker than water? Does love conquer all? Watch in amazement as all these questions and more are answered in this tense drama. Cluck in sympathy as a teenage girl struggles against her abusive father. Gasp in awe as she sets him up to be caught slap-bang in the middle of a drugs deal. Cluck in sympathy as her in-bred (careful, now) instincts get her to change her mind suddenly and dangerously on the very night in question! You will be amazed!!
