Plot synopsis:Tres dramatique, non?Celia Lane (Rebecca De Mornay, “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle,” “And God Created Woman”) is an uncompromising coach pushing her figure-skating daughter Jenna (Jane McGregor, “Robson Arms”) toward an Olympic gold medal. But after Jenna blows it in an important national competition, she becomes fed up with the sport and with her demanding, abusive mother and runs away to Vancouver. The gun-toting Celia immediately heads across the border to find Jenna and put her back on the path to Olympic glory. She won’t be denied in her quest, even though Jenna’s father is keeping the girl’s location secret and the Canadian police have confiscated Celia’s weapon.
