15 Certificate


Our Score
After spending the 1980s locked in courtroom battles in TV's LA Law , Susan Dey trades in her squeaky-clean image to play a cocaine addict. Her premature baby has already been taken away and she now faces a desperate struggle to clean up her act and get the child back. Strong stuff, with both Dey and co-star Piper Laurie giving it all they've got in this often powerful, but ultimately clichéd drama.


A woman with a serious cocaine habit gets pregnant, and her child is born an addict as a result, prompting the authorities to place the baby with temporary foster parents. Drama, starring Susan Dey, Piper Laurie and Lorraine Toussaint.
