ABC (Sun., Sept. 18, 9 p.m. ET)


In 1962 a divorcée (Marg Helgenberger), a hardworking, devoted mother of three, is briefly jailed on trumped-up charges. When she returns, her kids are gone. She begins to suspect her family has been targeted by a highly connected ring that appropriates poor kids for private adoption. So begins an unwavering maternal crusade to locate her family that goes on for decades (it only seems like centuries).

This plodding, lachrymal melodrama, based on an actual event, contains decent period details and better acting than this utterly conventional material warrants. Corbin Bernsen and Christopher Noth costar.
