Description by OLDIES.com:

Factory worker Thomas Hacklin has moved on with life after divorce. He plays baseball on weekends, dates a little, and never misses a scheduled visit with his two young children. But one day Hacklin shows up for a visit and finds his children are gone. They, Hacklin's ex and the mob-informant she married have been whisked into the secrecy of the witness relocation program. James Caan directs and stars in a compelling true-life tale of a father determined to find and reclaim his children, defying federal agents and anyone else standing in his way. Get caught up in "an unusually satisfying, almost perfectly scaled little melodrama about so-called ordinary people trapped in extraordinary events" (Vincent Canby, The New York Times).
