Griff McCleary is a cop, now his son shot himself with Griff's gun. A year later both he and his wife are still reeling from it. Griff feeling shut out by his wife Olivia, decides to move out. Now he is investigating what appears to be a murder-suicide. He believes that there was no suicide. His investigation leads him to a girl named Nikki. It seems that Nikki is a little fragile and has not had much luck with men. When Griff helps her, she asks if she could stay with Griff, and after she and Griff sleep together, she learns that he is a cop and that he has been following her, shattered Nikki shoots herself. Griff is then suspended from the force. But he is unaware that her partner-lover, Harlan, wanting to get back at Griff, is pursuing Olivia, who is vulnerable after hearing what happened between Griff and Nikki.

Playing with Guns Starts TROUBLE!
22 October 2004 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

This is a very entertaining film and starts off with a horrible beginning and gradually advances into a deadly plot. Linden Ashby,(Griff McCleary),"Whacked",'02, is a detective who is having problems with his marriage and has drifted away from his wife(Olivia) and their romantic activities in the bedroom. Alexandra Paul,(Olivia McCleary),"A Woman Hunted",'03, is suffering from a loss in her family and meets up with Maxwell Caulfield,(Horlan Moss),"Submerged",2000 who fixes her car and seeks a romantic relationship. The plot twists and turns and you wonder just how the film will finally END! Good entertainment for a TV film!
