The story is by Joan Micklin Silver. Kathleen Nolan is a mid-30s mother of four whose husband has been interned for years; Katherine Justice is a wealthy, sophisticated woman whose husband is technically missing, and she refuses to believe substantial evidence that he was killed; and Kate Jackson, in an outstanding performance, is a young girl, married only two weeks to her missing husband, who falls in love with another man.
