Movie Info

Based on a true story from 1910, this made-for-television movie tells the story of a teen who is hidden in an attic by his older lover. Anne Archer stars as Krista Heldmann, the bored housewife of a factory owner (Len Cariou). After the death of her son, Krista takes comfort by spending time with young Edward Broder (Harris), a teen employee of her husband's factory. Their relationship soon turns more serious, and the two become secret lovers. In an effort to conceal the relationship from her husband, she hides Broder in her attic. Their affair lasts over 20 years, despite Krista's eventual boredom and lack of devotion to her enslaved and now obsessed lover. The strange situation comes to a head one night when Edward and Krista's husband have a violent confrontation.
