Farrah Fawcett stars in one of her most critically acclaimed roles as Francine Hughes, a Michigan mother of three - and a battered wife. On the night of March 9, 1977, she is driven to murder. She sets afire the gasoline-soaked bedroom where her ex-husband Mickey (Paul LeMat) is sleeping - then confesses to the police. Based on a true story, this unforgettable film is a searing dramatization spanning twelve tormented years of family life. Francine grows from a spirited 16-year old into a shattered woman, as Mickey changes from a loving husband into a man warped by his own violence. Despite divorce and attempted reconciliations, Mickey's unceasing brutality ignites Francine's constant fear for her own life - until she lights a match. Hailed by movie and television critics alike, The Burning Bed is gripping, chilling and intense drama that will surely entertain.
