TV Movie | Not Rated | | Crime, Drama
An abused battered wife has had enough of husband beating up on her. Everywhere she turns for help, there's not much anyone will do. After he rapes her one night, she sets the bed on fire with him in it asleep.
Francine and Mickey Hughes were married when they were 16 and 18-years old, respectively.
If you make a hard bed, you have to lay in it.
Near the end of the film, we see Francine get beaten brutally in the face. But when she is arrested a day later, there are hardly any bruises on her face at all.
