Sedgwick is Rose, a modern young career woman in post-WWII New York, as American as apple pie, who lives two very separate lives.

After the war her older sister, thought dead, comes to America. The haunted Luisa causes Rose to question whether she can ever leave her past behind. Above average Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation has a good cast, particularly Plummer as Luisa. Based on the play “A Shayna Maidel” by Barbara Lebow. 95m/C VHS . Kyra Sedgwick, Amanda Plummer, Maximilian Schell, D.B. Sweeney, Penny Fuller, Milton Selzer, Maureen Stapleton; D: Joseph Sargent; W: Anna Sandor. TV
