Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

It's the TV-movie-maker's job to make a drama out of a crisis, but in this drama from director Dan Lerner a promising premise becomes a melodramatic mess. There is more than enough tension in the tale about a childless couple (Peri Gilpin and DW Moffett) who are waiting to discover whether her pregnancy is the result of her being raped. However, by having the rapist return to the scene of the crime to kidnap what he presumes is his child defies belief and devalues the realism of the human drama.
