This classic mini-series in six episodes tells the story of Katrina, a young woman whose life is threatened by the deception of the man she loves. This is also the story of her estranged father Hal Stanton-a drunk, a fraud and a has been a lawyer hiding from the past which is to haunt him forever. When Katrina is falsely imprisoned for drug smuggling, Hal becomes the only man who can save her.
Certainly the best mini-series ever created.
When I first have seen these Tv-series in Russia, I didn't have an opportunity to see it from the beginning, but I was surprised. It's the best TV-film I have ever seen, and it's Kidman's best performance. KEN Cameron did a great job. So does Grame Revell's fantastic, brilliant score. It grips you so much, you are nervous, it's so WONDERFULLY and realstically acted and directed, you even forget that you're in front of your TV set. By the way, the scenes of Nicole Kidman's redemption were borrowed later by Frank Darabont in his adaptation of Stephen King's "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption". It's such a pity that this movie was not taken too seriously and it passed by too quickly, and at the same time we have ridiculous bad acted features like Titanic. By the way, I managed to buy a video with these series, and I'm so HAPPY! [Comment from imdb]
