Synopsis by Hal Erickson
After an absence of 17 years, Laura Sinclair, who claims to have been abducted by aliens, suddenly reappears. Naturally, Laura has a lot of trouble bonding with her rebellious and resentful daughter Tammmy (Katharine Isabelle). Having grown up without a mother, Tammy has developed a strong attachment to her English teacher, a friendly, upbeat fellow named Marcus (Andrew Airlie). It is only after Laura herself becomes close to Marcus that the truth emerges about this "perfect" parental figure. "Dark Child" was first broadcast on January 4, 2002.
