"Interesting paranormal family drama"
In Millwood General Hospital near Phoenix, contractor Kyle
Cordell waits for his preadolescent son Jared to get a cast
put on his broken arm; at the same time and place, psychic
psychiatrist Gaelynn Graham waits for results on her dad.
Divorced Kyle helps her somewhat confused mom stay calm.
The next day Kyle and Gaelynn learn they will share a
storefront, but he becomes angry when he finds out she is a
psychic. Years ago his teenage sister died due to the
antics of a guru so he and his parents detest all forms of
New Age mumbo jumbo; his father runs the powerful Family
Foundation Against Mind Control. When his other son Jason
insists he saw the horror of the nearby school killings in
Phoenix before they happened, Kyle tells him it was nothing
and move on. An upset Jason talks with Gaelynn, a school
counselor, who provides him insight into visions of a
clairvoyant. This angers Kyle even as he is desires
sleeping with the enemy. However, his black aura comes to a
pivotal moment when Jason apparently runs away while his
grandfather starts to destroy Gaelynn and mentally abuses
Kyle and his mom.
This is an interesting paranormal family drama starring an
attractive cast except for his dad who is painted as an
abusive fanatic who is quite a contrast to her caring,
loving father. The clever story line uses differences
caused by being a psychic as a means to showing how
crippling any form of human prejudice is to everyone.
Though his change of heart seems too easy, fans will
appreciate this deep look at JENNY'S LEGACY needed to
overcome narrow-minded bigotry.
