Not so hot.
25 August 1999 | by Hermit C-2See all my reviews

Mimi Rogers stars in this TV-movie about a single mother in financial straits who has to keep supplementing her income with what she makes from part-time prostitution. She'd like to give it up since she's no young woman anymore and the risks are just too great, but events conspire against her. This could make for an interesting story but neither this movie or Rogers' performance are very compelling. Talented veterans Tyne Daly and Ray Walston are among the cast but they don't help much.
