Things are already rough enough for 17-year-old Jane Morgan (Hannah Vandenbygaart), as she finds herself caught in the middle of her parents' rocky separation. One night, while being driven home by her father Paul (Scott Gibson), the two are involved in an accident, which leaves Jane with an injured leg.

After narrowly surviving a car crash, Leah (Chelsea Hobbs) finds herself not only on the verge of being charged with drunk driving and auto theft, but with no memory of the crimes she supposedly committed or what led up to the accident.

When Jennifer Davis (Gabrielle Stone) arrives in the small town of Chestnut Hill, she initially appears to be an average girl.

After spending much of high school buried in her books, senior Becky Snyder (Cristine Prosperi) is convinced by her best friend Jen (Kalen Bull) to try out for the cheerleading squad.

For the past two years, I've been writing reviews on Vocal. I'll admit, when I started out, it took me a while to find my groove and establish my own style for review writing; the difference between my reviews starting out and the ones I write currently is certainly a stark one. I started out mostly focusing on the Lifetime movies, but have since branched out into other films in the Made-For-TV realm and beyond. As a result of putting my reviews out there, I've made contact with people requesting reviews, and that has allowed me to branch out into the indie film market and find myself exploring an avenue of film I love to write about; there's a certain charm to providing something of a voice for films that oftentimes don't receive as much attention as the films you see make it to the silver screen.
