The idyllic existence of New York art director Mallory Jordan (Sean Young) is shattered when her ad-executive husband Andrew Keswick (Charles Shaughnessy) and their two daughters are brutally slain in a robbery. Suddenly alone, the devastated Mallory can see no reason to ever again emerge from her bedroom--or, for that matter, to go on living. Helping Mallory escape from her self-imposed shell is compassionate police detective Michael DeMarco (Jack Scalia), who makes it his personal mission to track down and prosecute the persons responsible for the tragedy (evidently, DeMarco is the only homicide cop in New York who works without a partner!) As part of her "therapy", Mallory is allowed to accompany DeMarco as he interrogates and arrests the prime suspect--and as the days pass, the couple spends more and more time together, ultimately falling in love. The best part of this made-for-TV drama is the depiction of Mallory's all-consuming grief, which lingers in the memory far longer than her ultimate (and inevitable) healing process. Originally telecast on CBS under the title Barbara Taylor Bradford's Everything to Gain, the film has since been released to video as part of a "Barbara Taylor Bradford Trilogy."
