Nobody knows that the 11-year-old son of an unmarried woman (Loni Anderson) was conceived in a rape—until the man who brutalized her (Anthony John Denison) returns from prison, professing he wants to serve as the boy's father.

Despite a very soft middle section, this is a decent thriller with such nice Hitchcockian touches as gliding zoom shots and a sound track streaked with shivery strings.
