Plot Synopsis:

Farrah Fawcett scores a "personal triumph" (Los Angeles Times) with a "riveting performance" (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) in this "gripping movie about a woman who takes incendiary revenge on her brutal husband" (Time). Based on actual events, this courageous story of a woman pushed to the edge is a "gut-wrenching" (All Movie Guide), eye-opening and shocking experience.

Francine Hughes (Fawcett) marries her small-town high-school sweetheart Mickey (Paul LeMat)...only to discover his temper is short and his behavior violent. Urged to hang in there by her family and a broken social welfare system, she suffers continuous abuse - until desperation leads her to cross a threshold from which neither she nor her husband can ever return.
