Heartwarming and inspirational
24 September 2019 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

This made for TV movie is so much better than most of the so called Hollywood produced grade 1 films that have made it to the big screen. The lead actress Cassandra Scerbo, who plays Brittany a reformed streetwalker who witnesses her pimp murder her girlfriend decides to hide from the murdering pimp by assuming her dead friends identity. Cassandra Scerbo is a natural and she plays both parts to perfection as the streetwalker in hiding, as well as the long lost niece of the couple that takes her in under her assumed identity with many secrets.

As Brittany struggles living a big lie whilst her assumed Aunt and Uncle have no idea she is faking their (dead) real niece's identity, Brittany is showered with the love of family for the first time, and she also has a smart high school boy named Zach show great interest in getting to know the "real" Brittany better.

Meanwhile Brittany's former pimp knows he has to find her and shut her up forever as she witnessed him murder the real Chelsea. The acting in this made for TV was superb and the ending is heartwarming and sure to provide much needed encouragement to any young girls who are struggling on the streets alone.

Kudos for a well done dramatic film. I give it a 7 out of 10 rating.
