No mystery with this film because it was fantastic! Missing diamonds are the mystery to solve.
Great acting. Great storyline. A pretty good mystery for antique dealer Jennifer Shannon (Lori Loughlin) and her business partner Danielle (Sarah Strange) to sink their teeth into. There are also a few sub-plots that allow Ms. Loughlin's supporting cast to share the film's screen time with.
Mrs. Shullivan and I thoroughly enjoy this family added value made for television film that ignores most of the other mainstream over glorified phony Mission Impossible action themed films with their over used CGI and plastic surgically induced bimbos that spew profanities in an effort to maintain their audiences attention.
A robbery takes place at the opening of the film in which a handful of pristine large diamonds are stolen and shortly thereafter the two jewel thieves are murdered and the jewels are never recovered. Fast forward five years to the present time and at an auction of some commercial self storage containers where Shannon and Danielle outbid their competition for a storage container filled with "who knows what?"
You guessed it, the mystery diamonds re-appear, the owner of the commercial storage units is murdered and the mystery killer is out to get their diamonds back, and Shannon and Danielle are smack dab in the middle of this fun mystery to solve. There is also a touching scene near the end of the film in which Shannon, her husband and son are digging for real buried treasure in a senior citizens front yard that is very touching.
We loved this family mystery and therefore give this "diamond(s) in the rough"a perfect 10 out of 10 rating.
