Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Since making their names in LA Law, real-life married couple Michael Tucker and Jill Eikenberry have regularly teamed up in TV movies such as this so-so drama, which is based on a true story. Eikenberry plays a kidnap victim with a heart condition who has been left bound and gagged in her car; Tucker is her frantic husband who's desperately trying to locate her. The two leads turn in believable performances and, although it hardly taxes the brain, this is an intriguing enough time-passer.
