Heart of the Storm is a 2004 television film starring Melissa Gilbert and Thomas Cavanagh. It focuses on a prison break that occurs during a hurricane. Three convicts named Juke, Tad and their leader Simpson, seek refuge in a family's small house and decide to hold them captive. The family begins to get along with the escaped prisoners until Tad and Simpson get into a fight. Simpson ends up shooting Tad, incapacitating him. When the father of the family comes home, he is also shot by Simpson. Juke tries to help the family escape Simpson's treachery, only to be wounded by a gunshot as well. The group decides to ignite hairspray with fire in an attempt to kill Simpson. Simpson survives the attack but has his face severely injured in the process, resulting in him tumbling over a staircase balcony to his death.
