Based on the novel 'Waltz Into Darkness' by Cornell Woolrich, which was formerly filmed by Francois Truffaut under the title 'Mississippi Mermaid' (1969).

So, take an ordinary family - he's a competent young architect, establishing a sound local reputation, she's a doting mother and teacher. They have a young son, they are good family people, with good neighbours, good church connections, good prospects - the sort of American family that could be used as a yardstick to make the Simpsons look dysfunctional. Yes, they're that goody-goody - they look about as real and as natural as the hairstyles and wigs which will dance across your screen in the course of this film.
Then somebody abducts their child. They try to cope. They cooperate with the police, they do everything they can to trace the boy. But one of them has a secret.
A drama rather than a thriller, it can be slow moving at times, predictable at others; there are times when the annoying background music becomes the most dynamic thing happening. The acting is generally good - Ann Jillian is especially convincing in the role of distraught mother. Camera work and lighting are limited, and direction is sparse - it's a very middle-of-the-road, made for TV, don't do anything to frighten the horses, cliche-ridden production, with no great surprises, no originality, everything too neat and tidy, everything tied to the demands of TV advertising.
A competent production which doesn't get above average and which won't get your pulse racing.
