Seven years after her son was killed, Tess Ford is ready to live again. But a one-night romance with a handsome soldier throws her life back into chaos as the young man's attraction turns out to be a frightening obsession.
In a small town, Jordan, the son of police chief Bates, and his friends Glenn and Russel Derrek, the son of the garage-owner Gordon Russell, enjoy having their way with local girls, like Tori, and recording those exploits on video. When Alex Mills is about to report them to the police, he is pushed but it's staged as an accident. Samantha 'Sam' Cooper witnesses this, and is threatened in order to keep her silent, next her mothers car is sabotaged, finally ecstasy laid in her locker so an anonymous tip to the police gets her arrested. When Derrek turns his back to his friends and promises Sam's mother Laura to testify, he has a 'car accident', actually run off the road, but survives. Laura and Tori's mother Shawna get one cop, Officer Brady Thomas, to investigate, and the chief starts to suspect his son is going bad again, but where lies his loyalty?Written by
Samantha Cooper (Kirsten Prout) is a rebellious teen. Her divorced mom Laura Cooper (Kelly Rutherford) is overwhelmed. Sam witnesses a murder while out at a party in the woods. She drives away recklessly and gets arrested. The murderers are led by Jordan Bates who is the son of the police chief. She tells her friend Tori. The boys videotaped the incident and notice Samantha running away. They threaten her. She tries to run away to her dad. Her mother starts asking questions and Jordan sabotages her car. She finally tells her mother the truth but they plant ecstasy in her locker and she's arrested.
This is pretty good for a TV movie. There is good tension. Rutherford and Prout make a good combative mother daughter relationship. It is good that not every adult is clueless like most other similar movies. They are somewhat realistic human beings. It does need to be tightened up to build to a more exciting climax and the production value is limited. Considering what it is, this is a pretty good movie.
