In this run-of-the-mill suspense thriller, a woman fights for her survival on two different occasions. Kathy's (P.J. Soles) husband Joe (Kit Taylor) at first seems normal -- until Kathy catches him slashing a prostitute in the shower. She calls the police and Joe is institutionalized though not restrained enough -- he escapes and comes after Kathy. Terrified even after the sheriff dashes in and captures Joe, Kathy takes off for Australia to stay with her friend Gwen (Susan Stenmark) where new problems lie in wait. Gwen's landlord is deranged and spies on his tenants through hidden video cameras, a bad omen for Kathy's future safety. Although it is slow-paced and unimaginative, there is still enough suspense and action in this film to keep most viewers bracing themselves for whatever comes next.
