A Deadly Adoption

A Deadly Adoptionis a 2015 American made for television dramatic - thriller film directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg and written by Andrew Steele. The film aired on the Lifetime Network on June 20, 2015. It stars Will Ferrell , Kristen Wiig and Jessica Lowndes .

Sarah Benson ( Kristen Wiig ) is a successful organic food vendor. Her husband Robert ( Will Ferrell ) is a best-selling author and finance guru. They're also the parents of a one-year-old daughter, and Sarah is pregnant with their second child.

One day, during a gathering with friends at their home at fictitious Storm Lake, Sarah gets an urge for Robert to take her on a boat ride on the lake behind their home. Despite Robert's repeated warnings for Sarah to get off the unsafe dock, she leans against its railing, causing it to break away. She hits her head on the boat as she falls into the water. Robert dives into the water, pulling her to safety and successfully resuscitating her. The resulting trauma from the experience causes Sarah to lose the baby. As a result, they can no longer have children.

Five years later, Robert has become a recluse but has been sober for six months, recovering from an alcohol addiction which began after the loss of his child. He has also become over-protective of their now-six-year old diabetic daughter Sully ( Alyvia Alyn Lind ). Robert and Sarah plan to adopt an unwanted child, but are not satisfied with any of the birth mothers they have met with. They ultimately decide to house and care for an attractive young woman named Bridgette Gibson ( Jessica Lowndes ) during the final months of her pregnancy. Robert is currently writing his new book, but is struggling for inspiration.

After Bridgette tells the Bensons that she's living in a homeless shelter, Robert and Sarah decide to offer her a bedroom they had built onto the house for their child lost during Sarah's pregnancy until Bridgette gives birth. Bridgette accepts the offer, and then after left alone in her room, she pulls out a magazine with the Bensons on the front cover. She rips the half containing Sarah out of it.

Sully discovers through Bridgette's cracked bathroom door as she's showering that her enlarged belly is fake. Bridgette explains to Sully that because of her small and slender build, she was worried that the Bensons wouldn't believe that she was pregnant. The impressionable youngster accepts this, and agrees to keep this secret from her parents. Another secret is when Bridgette removes the training wheels from Sully's bike (without Robert's knowledge or approval) and pushes her down the driveway where she's almost struck by a car. She steers away from the vehicle and into the path of Dwayne Tisdale ( Jake Weary ), Bridgette's tattooed hoodlum boyfriend. Though unhurt, Bridgette persuades Sully to keep this a secret, which she agrees to.

One day, Robert opens the door to Bridgette's room, where he discovers a copy of one of his books among her belongings. He opens the front cover and recognizes the autograph as his own...to Joni. Robert then realizes that Bridgette is really Joni, a fan whom he slept with while on his last book tour and in the depths of his alcoholism. After Sully turns up missing, Robert and Sarah are questioned by police, who produce a photo of Joni, whom Robert denies knowing, despite his daughter's life being in danger.

Bridgette and Dwayne bring Sully back to their cabin across the lake, where Dwayne is led to believe Bridgette is with him on a plot to blackmail Robert in order to get Sully back. But Bridgette, unknown to Dwayne, has an agenda all her own: to kill Sarah and have Robert and Sully for herself. Charlie, an employee of Sarah's who's had suspicions of Bridgette, follows her and Dwayne back to the cabin. He is discovered and fatally shot by Dwayne.

After Sully begins to feel ill from not having her insulin, Bridgette speeds up her plan and confronts Robert and Sarah. A struggle breaks out and Bridgette shoots Robert in the shoulder moments after she overpowers Sarah, setting her in the driver's seat of her running car in the garage, making it look like a suicide attempt. Robert regains consciousness after being shot and finds Sarah, quickly moving her to fresh air. He then runs off to find Bridgette.

Bridgette is driving Dwayne's truck with Sully next to her, when she comes upon Robert standing in the middle of a bridge. She doesn't stop, and Robert dives out of the way just in time, but Bridgette halts the vehicle and aims her gun at Robert. Sully jumps out of the truck and runs to him. Holding them at gunpoint, Bridgette orders Sully to return to her or she will kill her father. Robert whispers something in Sully's ear before she turns to make her way back to Bridgette. On her way back to Bridgette, Sully darts to the bridge's railing and dives off the bridge. Distracted by the act, Bridgette shifts her gaze, allowing Robert to dive off the bridge after his daughter, as Bridgette fires her pistol after them.

Bridgette looks over the railing as Robert and Sully climb into a small boat with an outboard motor, which Robert tries frantically to start . She shouts after him not to make her shoot him again, but as she gets ready to pull the trigger, another shot rings out, with Bridgette sustaining a bullet wound below her right shoulder blade. The shot is from another gun that Bridgette left at the Benson home...now held by Sarah, having regained consciousness and followed her family to their would-be murder scene.

The movie ends with the final scene as being a year later, with the Benson family still intact. Robert and Sarah dance in the kitchen with their daughter.
