A hgh-powered businesswoman is sent to prison after she's caught for insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she fleeced is so quick to forgive and forget. The USA version was rated 16, as is the forthcoming DVD version here, so possibly this is a tamer version.

99 minutes.
