Domestic Disturbance

Synopsis: Susan Morrison is getting married to wealthy industrialist Rick Barnes. Danny, her teenage son with ex-husband Frank, isn't happy about this; he stows away in Rick's car one night, planning to go to Frank's house. But while there, he witnesses Rick murdering mysterious stranger Ray Coleman. Problem is, Rick's managed to dispose of most of the evidence, and he's considered a pillar of the community, while Danny has a history of lying. Frank believes him, though, and does some investigating of his own, as Rick's shady past slowly catches up to him and his new family.

beautiful places in the world

How did you end up here?

I invested in this

pharmaceutical company

They came out with this

new blood pressure medicine

Stock just went through

It was like winning

the lottery

It gave me a

chance to do

something different

with my life

You know, Frank, I'd never

try to take your place with him
