Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Lonely florist Joan Connor (Nancy McKeon) has always taken second place to her cute younger sister Laura (Alexandra Wilson), thanks largely to the well-meaning but misguided signals sent out by the ladies' mother Kay (Janet Leigh). With this in mind, it is perhaps understandable that Joan would be pleased and flattered when Laura's ex-boyfriend Michael (Thomas Joseph McCarthy) begins showering attention upon her. Unfortunately, Michael is a psychotic with several sinister ulterior motives on his mind--and it takes the revelation of a secret from the Connor's past to rid themselves of the dangerous Michael. . .and to bring the sisters closer together than ever before. Made for television, My Sister's Shadow debuted January 5, 1999 on CBS.
