Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Tony Bill is a happy single parent, blessed with a violin prodigy daughter (Ari Meyers). Enter Deborah Raffin, Bill's ex, who deserted husband and child 12 years earlier. Now a sophisticated world traveller, Raffin implores Bill to let her see her daughter. Running Out is the sort of TV movie with such "warmhearted" highlights as the 13-year-old daughter stealing a car in order to rush to the airport for a final embrace with her mother. Wallowing in syrup, Running Out was a singularly disappointing GE Theatre presentation.
