Synopsis (via Lifetime)

Elizabeth and her loving husband Jeff are basking in the glow of being new parents to baby son Evan. Author Elizabeth starts a mommy blog to document all the trials and tribulations of being a parent, but when she receives abusive messages from online trolls, she starts to doubt her decision. The harassment goes from bad to worse and she starts to wonder if her attacker has a personal motive. When baby Evan is kidnapped, Elizabeth’s world falls apart. But she’ll stop at nothing to find her baby, even if the consequences are deadly. Chelsea Hobbs, Stephanie Cleough, James Neate, Stephanie Izsak star.

Recap/Wine Thoughts

Elizabeth is thrown into jail in handcuffs.

Cut to no in jail Elizabeth holding a baby doll and her husband, Jeff, gifting her baby clothes. She had a c-section and has been in recovery for four months?!?! 

Elizabeth visits her friends Kate and Julie for brunch. They are interrupted by an avid fan of Elizabeth’s writing. (She is a best-selling author.) Julie can’t let Elizabeth have all the spotlight. She announces that she is pregnant. 

Someone is stalking Elizabeth. They follow her while she runs errands and posts outside her house at night. The stalker breaks into a fertility clinic and kills the doctor after unplugging a storage fridge. Hmmm. Okay!

Jeff and Elizabeth’s embryos were among the ones destroyed, and she is devastated. Elizabeth starts a hit blog (Like mine?) about the pain she suffers from the loss. She is happy until she reads the comments from someone called “Mommy Says No No.” (NEVER READ THE COMMENTS, LIZ!) She also starts vlogging and became a full-blown mommy influencer.

Kate drinks enough mimosas for everyone at another brunch and drunkenly tells Liz to respond to a troll. Immediately after Liz does, a rock is thrown from her window. The police show up and aren’t helpful, per usual. 

A rival blog starts up called “Why We Hate Elizabeth Daley.” The blog shows pictures of Liz holding Kate’s mimosa at brunch and calls her an unfit mother. 

To make her feel better, Kate and Julie take Liz to the spa. Jeff asks if she is suffering from postpartum depression. She isn’t, but she almost has a nervous breakdown when she locks her baby in the car. (Someone runs over her keys in the parking lot.) Fans stand around her and record the incident, further damaging her public reputation. 

Social Services is called, and they do weekly wellness checks on the baby. 

Jeff leaves a work event and is followed by someone driving erratically. He calls his wife and gets into an accident while on the phone with her. Jeff survives, but Liz needs help. She asks Kate to help take care of the baby. Kate agrees, surprisingly. (She isn’t very kid-friendly.)

When Liz goes to pick up her baby, she is horrified to find Kate is gone, and so is the baby. Liz finds a camera with the photos that “Mommy Says No No.” She calls the police, who try and find her baby.

Julie and Jeff tell Liz not to worry and assure her that Kate will never hurt her baby. Liz listens to them and remembers the fan from the beginning of the movie. She finds the woman on social media and tracks her down, and breaks into the woman’s home. The woman calls the police, and they take her to jail.

Liz escapes from jail and calls Julie for help, and heads on over. Little does she know Julie is the one who kidnapped the baby and attacked Kate. Kate is tied up and duck taped in Julie’s house. 

Liz cries to her friend; Julie gives her tea and tells her to take a nap. As Liz falls asleep, Julie tells her that she never appreciated the life she had. Julie couldn’t get pregnant and was over Liz’s perfect little life. 

Julie leaves Liz and takes the baby. (Love the scene where she straps the baby doll in the car seat while looking WILD!) Julie uses the spare key and lets herself in the house, but the alarm goes off and scares Julie to go on the run to the family cabin. 

Liz ignores the cop’s advice and drives herself to the cabin to confront Julie. Julie butts Liz in the face with a shotgun and runs with the baby (and the shotgun.) She doesn’t get far because Liz tackles her and uses her mother’s strength to clobber Julie until the police officer arrives. 

Liz celebrates her latest hit novel with some of her closest friends and fans with the baby safe (and not a baby doll.) Liz and Jeff are pregnant again!

  1. Super stupid. She drops her keys and locks her child in the car without picking her keys up off the ground to use the key that comes inside the fob. 𝐒𝐭𝐮𝐩𝐢𝐝 𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐩𝐢𝐭 𝐝𝐮𝐦𝐛 𝐦𝐨𝐯𝐢𝐞

  2. A Mother’s Fury was stupid. I couldn’t get past the opening scene because they clearly used a doll instead of a real baby. Idiotic!!!
