Mimi Leder (who's gone from directing episodes of ER to films such as The Peacemaker and 1998's Deep Impact) was responsible for this slight TV movie that features Cybill Shepherd in the lead role. Shepherd plays a wealthy LA doctor whose wish to adopt a child is about to be realised, but whose dream turns into a nightmare. The role gives Shepherd a bit more range than usual, but the film ultimately gets bogged down by its predictable plot and the run-of-the-mill performances from the rest of the cast.

This tale of betrayal is told with great control by director Jack Nicolella and acted with restraint by Donna Mills. As the wife and mother who discovers that her presumed-dead husband actually deserted her and is still alive, Mills keeps a lid on emotions that could easily have boiled over and turned her search for justice into yet another hysterical revenge drama. However, with the emphasis so firmly on Mills's crusade, Jack Scalia's rogue spouse is rather one-dimensional, and Stephanie Liss's script, based on the novel by Richard Rashke, doesn't probe deeply enough into the controversial issues it raises.

Though Kraft initially saved his powers for emergencies, he soon began practising full time, only to be accused of quackery by the medical establishment.
