Badger Welldon is working undercover with the police, he poses as her patient looking for clues about four missing men (which also includes his younger brother). He's confident when he first enters her office, with no intention of revealing anything about himself... as the therapy progresses, boundaries are broken. Disturbing secrets from Badger's past emerge, and a compelling bond develops between Daryl and Badger. As Badger's feelings deepen, so does the chilling evidence against her... will she be the one to remove his loneliness or will she be his executioner? Written by Dennis Fallon

I'm not a big comment contributor. I just had to with this.

This movie was so pathetic on so many levels, I scarcely know where to begin.

Plot – filled with holes and contrived.

Acting – I expected better from Devane and Young,perhaps even they couldn't bring life to such poor character development. The other actors are unknowns and their acting is on par with a student film.

Normally I would not have finished the DVD, but it got to the point where I had to continue just to see where the lame plot would lead. How surprised I was to find that it lead nowhere but through some hoops.
