Just An Overnight Guest (1983, TV Movie)

Richard Roundtree ("Shaft") and Rosalind Cash star in this touching story about a family that takes in an abused young girl on a temporary basis and, after a long ordeal, decides to make her a permanent part of their lives. An insightful story about the problems of abused children and also about African American family life, "Just an Overnight Guest" teaches children about sharing, compassion and responsibility. By example, it also encourages a positive attitude toward foster care and adoption, and spreads awareness of the problems and needs of homeless children.

Produced by Joanna Mallas, with Barbara Bryant as executive producer. Based on the book by Eleanora Tate.
