Storyline

Successfull Virginian horse-trainer and irresistible womanizer Virgil marries stud farm owner Frank Hadley's naively devoted daughter. To avoid being discovered skimming to pay his gambling debts, Virgil ends up arranging for Frank's death in a car 'accident' and his daughter being jailed, then convinces her to sign a divorce to save the farm's reputation and remarries an equally gullible prey. Alas, his first wife is inspired by a jail mate to become a race horse investment consultant, using a completely new identity, and obsessed with revenge, which gets priority over her re-found first love Sam.

Actually pretty good (Possible Spoilers!!!)
1 November 2003 | by domino1003See all my reviews

Sure it follows the typical TV movie of the week formula (Disfigured woman thrown in jail for a crime she didn't commit, gets her face fixed and seeks revenge on those who wronged her), but it is actually pretty good.

Spoilers Ahead!!!

Crystal Bernard is a wonder as Allison, a young woman that was disfigured in a car accident, is thrown in jail for a crime that her husband was responsible for. While in jail, she gets her face fixed, and she goes after her(now ex)husband. Doug Savant is your typical TV villain, so don't expect something new. Some of the actors have incredible cliché accents (Like they watched "Gone With The Wind" and learned that way), but otherwise, it's a good movie.
