Fifty-something Lillian Cage keeps house and meticulously irons her husband's shirts while humming the theme from "Rawhide" and enjoying a secret crush on the teenager who daily bags her groceries. When a robber shoots down the boy before her eyes, Mrs. Cage grabs the gun and turns it on the person she deems responsible, then carries the weapon to the police station in her straw hat to try to explain, in her own way, how it all happened.

I loved this show!!!!!!! The acting of both Anne Bancroft and Hector Elizondo was amazing and mesmerizing. I could not stop watching it. The connection between them was powerful. The plot was haunting and thought provoking, it really made me think about many things in the world between men and women/husbands and wives. I saw it for the first and only time 12 years ago on PBS and unfortunately could not record it at the time. I have searched for it unsuccessfully ever since..... I would love and appreciate a copy if anyone has one or can duplicate the show. Please contact me via e-mail.
