Pregnant wife Heywood is stalked and nearly raped by maniac Brett, causing her to miscarry and husband Todd to have an affair with his secretary.

Considering the subject matter and cast, this is an incredibly flat and dull affair, full of listless performances. Brett stands out, but not in a particularly good way - probably the only reason people would watch it now is to see Sherlock as a sex maniac. The incredibly bad music score by David Lee sounds like a high school band practicing fanfares and robs the film of any drama it might actually have. Never released on DVD, and not shown on TV since the last century, and not really worth seeking out.
