Synopsis

Dressing "down" to play a Queens, New York, hausfrau, Sophia Loren is a concerned wife and mother in this fact-based drama about a woman who discovers her elder son hooked on drugs and becomes an undercover agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration and helps bust a $3.5-billion cocaine ring, the largest since the famed French Connection. Billy Dee Williams is a flamboyant detective (a composite character) who becomes her liaison to the DEA; Hector Elizondo is her understandably anxious husband; Dan Hedaya is an international drug czar. Originally this was to have been called "Mother Courage" (after an article in New York Magazine on which it was based), but Bertolt Brecht's estate quite justifiably claimed prior ownership of the title.
