The Lies That Bind : Business executive Peter Morrison and his ex-wife, Joan, an artist, were never right for each other. When their marriage fails after eight years, Pete settles into the routine of court-sanctioned visits with his young son, Sam, a boy who has few physical similarities or common interests with Pete. When he discovers that Sam is not his biological son, Pete confronts Joan with the test results. She strikes back, cutting off visitation rights to keep Sam from finding out the truth. Suddenly Pete finds himself without a son - and without a father's legal right to get the boy back. Desperate for a solution and spurred on by an ambitious lawyer, Pete brings a lawsuit that breaks new legal ground in defining what a father is. Overnight, the private war over Sam's custody becomes front-page news - and the very public trial forces Pete and Joan to face the truth about their marriage, and the lies that bind them both to Sam.
