Synopsis
High school brother and sister Helen Hunt and Doug McKeon (in this second TV-movie in as many nights) get involved with drugs. Tom Atkins and Diane Ladd are their parents, Diana Scarwid their student counselor, and Sam Bottoms the local pusher. William Windom and Dr. Joyce Brothers are members of the school board. The film's title song was written and performed by the then up-and-coming soap star-turned-rock idol, Rick Springfield.
