Based on an actual event, this 1991 television movie is a chilling reminder of our universal vulnerability to events beyond our control.

The Ross Colburn family seemingly has everything going for them--a father (Richard Chamberlain) with a lucrative medical practice, a warm and vivacious mother (Michael Learned) who lovingly dotes on all her children, and siblings who genuinely seem very fond of each other.

The family's idylic life is shattered when the mother and youngest son are tragically caught up in a random robbery at a "hi-fi" store that turns sickeningly violent. The remainder of the film deals with the family's journey back from this deep trauma, as they try to survive and conquer their mutual despair.

The cast is uniformly excellent, and features Doug Savant, the fine actor currently co-starring in "Desperate Housewives" as one of the sons. Michael Learned is featured in the first part of the movie only, but does a wonderful job, as always, of portraying the warm and supportive wife and mother. Richard Chamberlain, in the pivotal role of the father, is marvelous--it is his character who undergoes the most drastic change in the film. Due to truly horrific circumstances, he is forced to change from being a somewhat removed and detached father, to becoming the emotional rock of strength and love for his entire family. He has some very moving scenes with the actors and actress portraying his children, particularly a very important scene near the end of the film, at the graveside of his wife.

All in all, a very well done television movie, that may find you turning away from the screen when the actual robbery is played out.

The story centers around a family impacted by the sudden death of a mother and a severely injured son. The two were victims of a horrendous crime, where they - and others - were forced to drink Draino and then were shot in the head.

Great movie! Based on a true story. I had seen this movie once, years ago, and had thought about it from time to time. When I found it here, I simply had to order it.

I read this book years ago, then watched the movie, which was a made for TV Movie. I recently re read the book, and it invoked the same feelings in me. Outrage, sadness, horror, and fear.
I could not imagine the mother lying there knowing her child was in such terrible danger, and the father of Stan also. These men were animals. I don't care what happened to them growing up. Many, millions of people are abused while growing up, and never, ever abuse anyone else.
Cortney Naisbaitt passed away at the age of 44. amazing that he lived that long, he was such a tough guy. But how said in so many ways his life was in the " Aftermath".
Nothing has changed much. The criminals still get all the attention, all the money is spent on them, and the victims? Well if the family has the money they need great, if not? I don't know what happens to them Why is this movie so expensive? It was after all a Made for tv moive, and while good, it is certainly not worth this outlandish price.
