Don't confuse this with the TV series on Lifetime, it isn't an episode of the series. This is a TV movie loosely based on one of those true life cases and the plot is quite good in the way true stories are often better than fiction.
A young woman Heather who has bipolar disorder (played quite convincingly by Olivia Crocicchia) and an ambitious woman Shane (30 Rock's Katrina Bowden) become friends after meeting at a hospital when giving birth. They become neighbors and baby sit for each other. Chris Zylka plays Shane's struggling husband whose weakness of character is quite well portrayed. Things are quite normal at first and they have some problems but then some bad decisions are made when Shane wants to invest in a business and things spiral out of control. Nobody is obviously good or bad at least at first it makes things tense because you don't know how things are going to play out.
Worth a watch.
