1 hr. 40 min.
Needing help to care for her rambunctious daughter, Tara (Quinn Cummings), Liz Benedict (Patty Duke Astin) hires teen Joanna (Stephanie Zimbalist) as a housekeeper and baby sitter. Liz's husband, Jeff (William Shatner), a doctor, does not approve of the idea, but Joanna initially does a wonderful job keeping things in order. Slowly, however, she begins to pit the Benedicts against each other while she attempts to woo Jeff. Meanwhile, a neighbor (John Houseman) investigates Joanna's past.
