Trapped by her motherly role to her 10-year-old son Jacoby, Hackett faces new difficulties when she takes on lover Klein. Frustrated with trying to hide her lover from her son, and her son from her lover, she marries Klein. But Jacoby reacts with fits of jealousy that would make any mother
cringe with embarrassment. The attempt to give some substance to this exploration of some pretty complex problems lacks the performances to make it work. The New York settings, which could have been manipulated to add to the tension of the characters, only limit the already slim portrayals.
