Petty criminal Carla Huxley, whom he built up from the gutter, now runs a US agency, which leaves loose ends, so detectives apply undercover as prospective parent. The Mexican supply being disturbed, she calls on a Brazilian hospital for white babies to order and an Indian slum for 'cheaper' supply. Written by KGF Vissers

Enjoyed this one. A decent made for TV movie
10 April 2015 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

This was actually pretty good especially when the story left (fake) San Francisco (Vancouver) and moved internationally. I got particularly caught up in all the victims stories; a young girl in south America who is told her blond haired, blue eyed newborn has "died" along with several victims in India as well as the desperation and loss of the American families, attempting to adopt. All the secondary characters did a great job here.

This is a (Lifetime) TV movie but not as cheesy as usual and could actually function quite well as a TV series. Jennifer Finnigan is good as a Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) detective, determined to bring down a ruthless international kingpin who controls a worldwide baby-selling operation.

After losing her partner in a bust gone bad (which also results in a truckload of trafficked pregnant women and live babies)'Nic' goes undercover as a perspective adoptive parent, travelling to India and becoming entwined with a family whose baby has been stolen.

Kirstie Alley plays the black market baby operator 'Carla Huxley' and is suitably nasty, preying on the desperation of the perspective adopters while remaining ruthless and treating babies like cattle. The ending is slightly abrupt but a decent made for TV movie. 3/17/15
