When a university student goes missing, her mother a former cop goes in search for her. What she encounters is a wall of academia bureaucracy and coverups that point to an abuse of authority stemming all the way to the government.
Being a fan of Victoria Pratt, a solid but underrated Canadian actress, I had been waiting for some time to see this one and wasn't sure what to expect. I had not watched many Lifetime movies, and was used to seeing Vicky in things like Mutant X, which seems miles away from a TV legal thriller.
Although I expected Pratt to be strong, I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised by this film. It kept my interest throughout and had some decent performances besides Vicky's conflicted defense attorney. Vince Spano was solid and William B. Davis did not disappoint, bringing his "Cigarette Smoking Man" vibe to several scenes.
In addition, the story was fun, fairly taut and kept me guessing until the end, although a few of the kissy-kissy moments were a tad sticky sweet, but I suppose that was to be expected given the network. Overall, there are certainly worse ways to spend two hours. I give it a 6 which, for me, is a pretty good grade.
I hope this serves as a nice springboard for Vicky into her new TV series "Daybreak" which debuts on ABC in November.
