When you dispose of a solid script, you have reached the half of the victory. The plot concerns about an awful personal disgrace. When an innocent creature is abandoned by her mother due religious, moral and social prejudices (the mother was pregnant by his lover who died in Vietnam), then she will be adopted and his stepfather will sexually abuse of her.
Around all this somber landscape of repressed rage and impotence state, this child will become woman and she will intend by all her means to find her biological mother. Since this achieved aim, a very carefully plain will be set in motion, seeking for revenge.
An effective and chilling movie where the good guys after all are not absolutely innocent. Good performances. A picture above the average.
Pass this one by unless you're a die-hard fan

"It is difficult to summarize this movie without explaining the entire plot in one or two sentences. There is a small twist at the end that differentiates it from others, but this is so minor and comes so late it is difficult to accept or care. Essentially, we are treated to an opening that introduces us to Susan Heller (played by Andrea Roth, who despite being in movies such as this has quiet a following online) who stumbles into the lives of a ranching family when his car "breaks down". She manages to win the trust of the husband (played by Gil Gerard - yes, Buck Rogers himself - who shows us all just how low you can sink) and gets a job. However, the sister does not believe her (as the formula dictates) from the very beginning, and sets out to discover the truth behind Susan."
