Lifetime makes two kinds of movies: sunny, candy-coated ones that warm viewers’ hearts, and disturbingly mind-f***ing thrillers that make viewers unable to leave the edge of their seats. The fact that the network continuously presents a stream of such productions on television makes its offerings even more delightful as they can be enjoyed from the comfort of one’s couch. ‘Birthmother’s Betrayal’ is a Lifetime movie that definitely falls under the latter category. It employs an unnerving premise that might not be for the faint-hearted.
‘Birthmother’s Betrayal,’ as one might have guessed, is about motherhood and the possessiveness that is associated with it. The movie uses this to craft a rather rousing plot, filled with tons of twists and turns.
The movie follows the character of Tara and her adoptive mother, Amy. At the age of 16, Tara uses a DNA website to find out about her biological parents. This leads her to Grace, her birth mother. However, Grace proves to be rather fitful and erratic. Consequently, Amy becomes concerned about her adopted daughter as she fears Grace attempting to re-enter her (Tara’) life. As a result, she starts to become overprotective of Tara and develops a hatred for Grace.
Amy even starts to doubt whether Grace is telling the truth about herself. However, that does not stop Tara from growing close to Grace, heightening Amy’s stress. Amy starts to think that Grace might have some form of mental disorder because of her unstable behavior. Grace, on the other hand, seems to be determined to “win Tara back.” Thus, a form of disturbing competition commences between the two!
