Logline: 
A child is murdered. Her father kills the murderer. Both parents then have to recover from their child's death, and this sad, disastrous vengeance.
Synopsis/Details: 

Six-year-old Jeanine Alden is murdered by Frank Hynek. He is tried and convicted. During the sentencing hearing, the girl’s father, Glenn, kills Hynek. Though tried for this killing, Glenn is acquitted. During a news conference, Frank’s sister, Sarah Tolbert, swears vengeance against Glenn. A radio DJ by profession, Glenn quits talking and walks away. He ends up 200 miles from home on a ranch.

Glenn also walked away from his wife, Janet. She is left to pay for their new home on her salary working at a women’s clinic. Unlike Glenn, Janet will not give up on her life. She receives ugly calls from strangers who blame Janet for her daughter’s death. She works seven days a week to occupy her mind. She wears the same outfit each day because Glenn bought it for her. After Janet reviles a woman for not paying her bill, the clinic owner tells Janet to attend counseling, or quit. At the counseling session, Janet has a nervous breakdown.

The story portrays Glenn’s slow emotional healing and Janet’s simultaneous deterioration. After nine months without speaking, Glenn is ready to return home, and Janet can no longer survive without him. On his way home, however, Glenn sees his daughter. Glenn follows her to a motel, where Sarah Tolbert waits. Intending to torment her brother’s killer, Sarah found a girl who closely resembles dead Jeanine. But deluded Glenn is convinced that his daughter never died. He barricades the three in the motel room.

The police arrive at this hostage situation. Since Glenn is known to have killed a man with his bare hands, the police are prepared to shoot him dead. Janet is flown in by helicopter. At the scene, she loses her lethargy. When Sarah begins screaming (falsely) that Glenn is going to shoot the girl, Janet breaks through police lines just as the marksman is about to kill Glenn. Janet leaves the room not with the false daughter, but her genuine husband.
