Tracey Gold stars in this ABC Afterschool Special as Ari Jacobs, the envious younger sister of spoiled, imperious Elizabeth Jacobs (Cheryl Arutt). It is bad enough that Ari is treated as a baby by Elizabeth, ignored (or so she thinks) by her mother, and bullied at school; even worse is the fact that Ari has no possessions she can call her own, all of them mere "hand-me-downs" from her sister. The plot thickens when Ari is forced by a bullying girl to "borrow" Elizabeth's bike -- which is promptly stolen. The Hand Me Down Kid is based on a novel by Francine Pascal.
