Our Score
Every trauma possible is thrown into the mix of this thriller as alcoholic, divorced investigative journalist Meredith Baxter Birney has to rescue her young son, who has been snatched by a paedophile intent on selling the child to a porn film-maker. Director Karen Arthur whose credits include the daft mini-series The Jacksons: an American Dream manages to keep the tension mounting despite some less than plausible plot twists, and she is ably abetted by a cast that includes Christopher Reeve, Wings Hauser and Terrence Mann.


A paedophile kidnaps an eight-year-old boy, sending the child's alcoholic divorced mother on a desperate search. Psychological thriller, with Christopher Reeve, Meredith Baxter, Wings Hauser, Richard Bradford and Geraldine Fitzgerald.
