When the Bough Breaks (1986) is a made-for-TV movie directed by Waris
Hussein. Alex (Ted Danson) is a successful psychiatris. After a case
goes terribly wrong, Alex decides that he needs to take a break and
retreats to the mountains. To his annoyance, a friend and detective
(Richard Masur) seeks Alex's help. A young girl (Marcie Leeds) may hold
the key to a terrible murder, but she is too traumatized to remember.
Alex begins to uncover dark secrets that might be better left buried.
