After Julie Lawson (Melissa Gilbert, TV's Little House on the Prairie) is diagnosed with a life-threatening blood clot in her brain, she investigates her family's medical history and is devastated to learn she was adopted at birth, and even more shocking, that her conception was the result of a rape. Julie must convince her birth mother, Beth (Patty Duke, Valley of the Dolls), to face her scarred past to find her only shot at survival--her natural father. But, the only clue of his identity is a single button ripped from his jacket. As Julie's chances of survival slip with time, mother and daughter must unravel the mystery behind the horrific event to reveal the attacker's identity. Also starring William Shatner and Eric McCormack.

Ms. Duke and Ms. Gilbert are wonderful together, and this re-teaming of them is certainly worth the price. William Shatner, Eric McCormack, and Gordon Clapp all have roles in this movie too, but it is the chemistry of the two stars that really makes this something special.
The story is interesting and leaves the audience guessing. Even though I've seen it several times, it never gets old. Great performances definitely make it more memorable though.
If you are a fan of either of the leads, or if you just love great entertainment, this is definitely a DVD you should have in your collection.
Also, the song, Hey ! Paula, is in the film. I sang with the songwriter, Ray Hildebrand, which was Paul, of Paul & Paula,in a record album,back in the 80's.
I really enjoyed this movie.
