Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Family Ties "mom" Meredith Baxter stars as a wife whose life is turned upside down when her partner (played by then real-life husband David Birney), believed missing in Vietnam, reappears and drags her into a rather complicated and confusing espionage plot. Although this thriller is often ludicrous, Baxter manages to inject enough style into her performance to keep you watching, and director Rod Holcomb keeps the twists and surprises coming at a fair old pace.
