Movie Summary

Mick Jackson (I)

Former Secret Service agent turned bodyguard Frank Farmer is hired by the manager of successful pop singer turned actress, Rachel Marron, who has recently been receiving threatening notes/letters. Farmer is haunted by the fact that he quit being a bodyguard for Ronald Reagan, just before he got shot. Farmer wants to keep his relationship with Marron professional, but he does agree to go on a date, and they do sleep together, but of course he feels this was a mistake, and she is obviously being snide towards him, and he knows he can't stop thinking about her in that way. Eventually, as her stalker threatens to manifest, Farmer must cope with his feelings towards her if he is to protect her from danger.
