Description
A naive teenage girl in south Texas falls in love with her prison pen pal. The object of her affection -- a charming, dangerously handsome young felon who romances her through his letters to her. After a love affair that defies all conventions, they marry and have a child while the father is still imprisoned. But when he escapes to claim his wife and child, what started as a passionate romance turns into a terrifying ordeal of obsession and desire. The young girl's only hope is a fiercely dedicated public aid lawyer who is more of a mother figure than the girl has ever known, and the only one who can avert disaster for mother and child
