But all that changes when Alex's private plane crashes into the California coastline. Devastated by the loss of her husband, Holly devotes her time and energy to getting ready for the baby.

Now it seems that someone is trying to get to her through her seven-year-old daughter, Amy. However, Jennifer is mistaken if she thinks an obsessed fan is after her.
