19 April 2003 | by sowbiSee all my reviews

It's basically a thriller set in a Silk Stalking like scenario.

Starts off with a guy in a bus, who hits on this girl. Then, they both get off in the same station, and move their separate ways. The girl is gonna be a nanny to her friend's kid. The friend has married into a very rich family. The guy goes to this place to work as a mechanic. But he is actually a cop.

Then u get introduced to the girl's friend's husband, the brother of the husband, the sectretary, a guy who races cars and loses, and so on.

It is basically a shorter soap with a very obvious twist in it.

If u've got nothing to do and do not expect to see only grade A movies, I'll recommend it.
