Runaway Father/Lady from Yesterday

A woman and children left destitute by her husband plus a Vietnam vet's life left in turmoil by old affair

RUNAWAY FATHER

SHE FOUGHT FOR HER DAUGHTERS’ FUTURE – AND BECAME A NATIONAL HEROINE.

Pat Bennett’s hopes are so high when she marries the dashing US Airforce Captain John Payton. But by the time Pat is pregnant with their third child, the marriage is falling apart.

One day, John walks out to a new, secret life of luxury, leaving Pat and their kids to starve on welfare – he even fakes his own death to avoid detection.

Still very much in love, only gradually does Pat realise that she is dealing with a cheat and a liar, but this makes her all the more determined to track John down and confront him, if not for herself then for the sake of their daughters.

This dramatic and inspirational story stars DONNA MILLS (Knots Landing, Play Misty for Me) and JACK SCALIA (Dallas, Judith Krantz’s ‘I’ll Take Manhattan’).

LADY FROM YESTERDAY

WILL THEIR PAST DESTROY HIS FUTURE?

In this complex emotional drama, a Vietnam veteran finds his family life back in the States disrupted by the revelation that, ten years ago, he unwittingly fathered a child with a Vietnamese woman.

Craig Weston (WAYNE ROGERS, M

  • ASH) lives in Houston with his wife, Janet (BONNIE BEDELIA, The Division), and their two daughters. Craig’s professional and family lives are both overshadowed by his manipulative employer and father-in-law, Jim ‘J.C.’ Bartlett.
    Out of the blue, Craig is contacted by Lien Van Huyen, a woman with whom he had an affair when he was serving in Vietnam. Lien drops two bombshells: Craig in the father of her son, Quan, and she is terminally ill and wishes him to adopt the boy.

    J.C. finds out about the liaison and threatens Craig with both the loss of his home and his job unless he severs all ties with Lien and Quan. Torn between fear of losing his family and his moral obligation to Lien, Craig decides to make a clean breast to Janet about this secret from his past. But how will she take the news of her husband’s infidelity?

    THE LADY FROM YESTERDAY also stars PAT HINGLE (The Grifters) and TINA CHEN (Three Days of the Condor). The script is by TIM MASCHLER (Police Story) and KEN PETTUS (The Green Hornet), and the director is ROBERT DAY (Hollywood Wives).
