    Diana Ross is phenomenal in this story of a woman who struggles to overcome paranoid schizophrenia. In fact the entire cast is excellent. The portrayal of the illness and its effects on her family is very realistic and heartbreaking. Thanks Jon, for making this criminally overlooked TV movie available.
