Terri Ferguson (Eden) is a housewife married to well-known and respected businessman Stanley (Ackroyd) who also has an estranged relationship with her college aged daughter Michelle (Peterson), and she's still feeling the empty nest syndrome. Terri's perfect world is shattered when her husband is brutally murdered and thus begins a terrifying ordeal where Terri finds herself the prime suspect in her husband's murder and becomes the helpless victim of Connie Stewart (Swit), a deranged woman and ex-college rival of Terri's who is the real murderer and was Stanley's ex-lover. She blames Terri for stealing Stanley away from her years ago and plots a psychotic revenge against her. Although the police are determined to convict Terri, and with no one else to turn to, she must do battle alone against Connie.[1]
