Ties That Bind is a 2010 film that tells the story of detective Allison McLean (Kristanna Loken), a tough and dedicated law enforcement officer who possesses a strong sense of justice. Allison is divorced and has two children, Jeff and Reagan, whom she loves dearly. The story begins with a woman named Sarah (Kristen Hager) fleeing from her abusive husband, Kevin (Warren Christie). In the process of leaving, Sarah gets into a car accident that causes her to lose the baby she was carrying. Allison is called to the scene and takes Sarah to the hospital, where she finds out about Sarah's situation.

Allison immediately takes a liking to Sarah and her young daughter, Laura, and offers to help them in any way she can. Despite initial reluctance, Sarah eventually agrees to let Allison investigate her case, but makes it clear that she does not want to press charges against Kevin, who is the father of her daughter.

As Allison delves into Sarah's story, she discovers that Sarah's relationship with Kevin is not as simple as it seems. Kevin is a violent man who often takes out his anger on Sarah, but he is also a charismatic and charming person who has many friends in town. Sarah's reluctance to press charges stems from her fear of retaliation from Kevin and his friends, but it also stems from her lingering affection for him.

Through her investigation, Allison uncovers a web of lies, deceit, and betrayal that threatens to tear Sarah's life apart. She also struggles to balance her duties as a detective with her responsibilities as a mother, as her children begin to resent her absence and her focus on Sarah's case.

As the story unfolds, Allison gradually builds a bond with Sarah and Laura, becoming a mentor and a friend to them. She also works to bring justice to Sarah's case, even as she faces opposition from her colleagues and the community at large.

It features strong performances from Kristanna Loken, Warren Christie, and Kristen Hager, who bring depth and nuance to their characters. The film is directed by Frédéric D'Amours, who balances the film's emotional intensity with moments of humor and warmth.
