Writer Ron Bass and director Joan Micklin Silver combine their melodramatic tendencies for the Lifetime movie Invisible Child. The story involves a woman, Annie Beeman (Rita Wilson), who has somehow developed a mental condition where she believes she has an imaginary daughter named Maggie. Amazingly enough, her husband, Tim (Victor Garber), and daughter, Rebecca (Mae Whitman), play along with her for five years. Their son, Sam (David Dorfman), is too young to understand and he grows up actually believing that Maggie is real. Eventually they hire an English nanny, Gillian (Tushka Bergen), who brings a rational perspective to the situation. They all work together to save the family and rid Annie of her delusions.
