Lifetime channel’s ‘Deadly Double Cross’ is also known by two other names – ‘Precious Things’ and ‘My Daughter Is Innocent’. ‘Deadly Double Cross’ follows the story of a mom trying to prove her teen daughter’s innocence in a murder case. Lisa is a ‘cool mom’, more a friend and confidante to her daughter Amber than a mother. She even occasionally borrows her daughter’s clothes, much to Amber’s embarrassment. Amber’s best friend is Kelly, whose mother Heather is Lisa’s BFF. Things go majorly wrong when Amber and Kelly realize that the older guy that each of them is dating is actually the same man playing them both. Alex (or Xander) is a player of the first degree and both girls decide he is not worth ruining their long-time friendship over. Only, Kelly doesn’t stop seeing him, which upsets Amber further when she finds out.
Alex, under suspicious circumstances, takes a tumble down the stairs and sustains grave injuries, eventually succumbing to them and dying in the hospital. The police suspect Amber for the murder as her phone’s GPS proves that she left the house in the middle of the night to go see Alex. This was the same night when the murder was taking place. With Amber locked up and the evidence all pointing to her as the culprit, it’s up to her mom Lisa to don the garb of amateur detective and prove her daughter’s innocence. The film is directed by Maxwell McGuire and written by Daniel Weissenberger. Curious to know more about where this movie was filmed and who is the main cast? We’ve got you covered.
