Loni Anderson, James Naughton, and John Heard star in this tense tale of a woman whose life is changed forever after discovering that her husband is a dangerous drug kingpin. Deceived by her husband Rick (Naughton) into believing he is an average businessman, devoted housewife Lauren LaSalle (Anderson) is horrified to learn that he is in fact a high-profile drug dealer with a violent reputation. Upon learning this well-guarded secret, Lauren steals $2 million in cash from her husband, rounds up their daughter, and goes into hiding. But Rick isn't willing to let go of his daughter without a fight, and quickly begins using every resource at his disposal to bring his little girl back home.
