| Lifetime, what did I expect
It's very sad to see beautiful, talented Jennifer Beals in a film like this, but such is the price of turning 50 in Hollywood. I give her credit -- she works much more than many other women her age. I think she could have afforded to skip this one.

Beals stars as Liz, a woman who has had a mental breakdown and recently returned to her family. She is the breadwinner; her husband Gabe is an out-of-work musician trying to put an album together. One day a young woman shows up, says her name is Caitlin and that she's Gabe's daughter. Her mother is deceased, and her will directed her daughter to him.

Since Caitlin is living out of her car, the family moves her in, and before long, she is causing problems as they await the DNA results. For one thing, she kisses her brother on the lips. Strange things begin to happen to Liz's work - files disappear when she's trying to make a presentation at work, for instance. Before long, Liz feels like she's ready for the asylum again.

It won't be hard to figure this one out. Thanks to Beals, it's not as bad as it could have been. One problem - for a presentation as major as the Beals character was giving, one would think she would have had those files on a jump drive in her office. Just saying. I saw it on Lifetime, which says it all.
