A Julia Roberts double bill. In 'Dying Young' Victor Geddes (Campbell Scott) is an arrogant and wealthy young man who has been fighting against leukemia for 10 years. He hires Hilary O'Neil (Roberts) to care for him during chemotherapy. Despite the class differences and Geddes' antagonistic personality, the couple fall in love, but each day is filled with the dread that the disease will finally take the young man's life. In 'Sleeping With the Enemy' Sara Burney (Roberts), the victim of appalling domestic abuse, stages her own disappearance to escape her monstrous husband (Patrick Bergin). However, even a new town and a new name cannot stop her husband and when he discovers where she is, he wants revenge.
