A man is sent to a small town to assess which of the workers in the local factory that supplies the town with jobs should get the boot when the downsizing begins. He gets sidetracked when he falls in love with a local, a cute single mom.
Imagine a case of a kid called Nathan (Ryan de Boer) who thinks he is too smart for anyone's good, even making the life of the cop who is looking after him (Tim Matheson as Norm) just so miserable.
This is the plot outline here.
I wondered at times when Norm will be able to catch up with Nathan's latest antics because the kid is just too smart. In the adults' eyes, someone like Nathan is just too hard to handle. Maybe I was this sort of goody-goody girl as I was growing up, so I almost could not tolerate Nathan at times.
But then I soon realised, one really needs the wit to overcome someone who is a generation younger than you.
Interestingly that this is called 'A Deadly Game' here when I saw it few days back on the television here. Anyhow, wit is the key to this made-for-TV movie.
