Tagline: What do you do when justice fails?

Plot: Karen and Mack McCann's worst nightmare comes true when their teenage daughter is brutally raped and murdered by Robert Doob, a cold, sneering lowlife. Matters deteriorate even further when the court dismisses the murderer's case, due to police error. Naturally, Mack and Karen are completely enraged, but Mack eventually succeeds in controlling his anger and dealing with the situation. Karen's mounting fury and frustration, however, cause her to become obsessed with both Doob, and with avenging her daughter's death. As a result, she begins to stalk the psychopath -- she even takes karate lessons, and buys a gun. But is killing Doob really the answer to her problems?
