IMDb synopsis: Rob and Jill Tyler adopt two children. Eric is sweet, quiet and shy, and Catherine is nice at times but has terrible, violent outbursts for no apparent reason. She sticks the dog with needles until the animal bleeds; smashes Eric's head on the basement floor, resulting in an emergency room visit; and, tries to stab her new adoptive father with a knife while he's sleeping. Jill and Rob meet Dr. Rosemary Myers, who examines Catherine and finds out that she was abused by her biological father.
