This TV movie gets off to a most auspicious start : a rumor is spreading through the Streets of a small town:in the high school,a woman,a gym teacher, may (or may not) have an ambiguous relationship with one of her (female) students .Besides,the teenager runs away,which fuels the gossips.
Ingrid Chauvin,an athletic attractive actress, possesses mystery and charisma going for her,and the part was tailor-made for her ;unfortunately,after thirty interesting minutes,there is no more room for doubt concerning this love.Which is downright embarrassing.The writers try to make up for it by making their heroine a persecuted person :her car is burned,her colleagues talk behind her back,the PTA woman is obnoxious,she breaks up with her lover -who still loves and trusts her-,a car almost got run over her .Only one of her old friends shows some compassion and support,proving once more you should not go by appearances.The ending,borrowing from Wyler's "the collector" and too many serial killer stories,does not make any sense.
