Callie Ross (Elizabeth Gillies) is stealing and getting fired in her aimless life. She steals her petty criminal boyfriend Jake's truck. With nowhere to go, she decides to go home. Her father, who originally cut her off, had a vegetative stroke. Despite her stepmother Emma (Cynthia Stevenson) and half-sister Laura Ross (Tori Anderson)'s open arms, Callie sees an opportunity to seek revenge for her mother who committed suicide. Trying to tell a story from the villain's side is always difficult and infinitely fascinating. It's different from other Lifetime TV movies in that the female lead is not a victim. In fact, I expected a tale of sexual abuse by the father. I guess it's interesting that it does not go down that path. It would elevate the stakes if the money amount is bigger. The style is strictly Lifetime TV. The switch does leave a confused rooting interest and resign this to a limited idea. Gillies has a damaged bratty beauty persona. She needs to spice it up with some more volatile violence. She needs to single white female this more.
