Ridiculous ‘psychological’ thriller stars an overbearing Richard Dreyfuss as a child psychiatrist who abandoned his work years before when he lost a patient to suicide. Now, the police have come knocking on his door asking him to throw away his retirement in order to help them solve a fresh case: a young autistic boy () was found holding a bloody knife next to the dead bodies of his parents. Dreyfuss enlists the boy’s older sister (a debuting ) to help him unlock the youngster’s secrets and find out what really happened to the victims.  and John Lithgow perform in forgettable roles in this very stupid film that just gets more farfetched the more it goes on, until climaxing with an embarrassing finale.
