Based on movie star Joan Crawford's daughter Christina Crawford's bestseller, this is the sordid story of what she went through growing up in the insecure world of Hollywood. Joan (Faye Dunaway) adopts Christina (Mara Hobel) and Christopher (Jeremy Scott Reinbolt) with plans to give them a happy family life. But, when Joan is troubled by problems with men and her sagging career, it is the children who bear the brunt of her problems. As they grow up, Christina and Christopher (now played by Diana Scarwid and Xander Berkeley) have memories of brutal treatment at the hands of their mother that continue to have an effect on them.
