The mob is after something and due to an unfortunate set of circumstances they believe that a school teacher by the name of "Lindy Daniels" (Donna Mills) may have it. And they will stop at nothing to get what they are after. In one specific scene Lindy Daniels is seriously injured trying to get away and this makes her plight even more difficult for her in the days ahead. Now, since I don't want to spoil this movie by giving out too many details, I will just say that this is a "made for television" film that has a couple of tense moments and Donna Mills looks as beautiful as always. Martin Balsam also gives a decent performance as a retired policeman-turned-private investigator named "Captain Caleb Sark". On the other hand, I was underwhelmed by the one-dimensional performance of Chuck Connors who played the hit man "Brian DiPaulo" and I suspect that some of this film was left on the cutting room floor. Be that as it may, this film doesn't have any graphic violence, sex or profanity that one would find in a typical movie today and because of that it may appear tame to some. In any case, it's worth a look for anyone who is interested in a good crime-drama from the early 70's.
