Plot Synopsis

The overbearing mother of a divorced twenty-two year old woman falsely accuses her daughter of Satanic, ritual child abuse so she can get custody of her grandson. The young woman meets and marries a perfect guy and eventually wins the court battle when her son confesses that his grandma coached him to lie. Convinced that her daughter is an unfit mother, granny kidnaps the boy but is eventually brought to justice by sympathetic law enforcement officials.
