In 21st Century Society, "Stalking" connotes a myriad of imagery and numerous definitions. Ask any female adult and she has either directly been a "victim" of "stalking," or she has a friend who has been a victim. Stalkers are no longer simply the lurkers in the shadows from the "Stalking" films of the 20th Century. Stalkers come in all shapes and sizes and socio-economic backgrounds. In addition to preying on their victims, stalkers can be apprehended for "following" in other ways including e-mail communication, texting, and even inappropriate posts on Facebook. In The Appeal of Stalking, Billy Freeman is accused of stalking his exwife, Diane Downer, after Downer attempts to take custody of their six year-old grandson, Trystan. Trystan's mother, Faith Freeman, enters a "family-friendly" alcohol rehab facility, but with the help of Trystan's illegal alien father, Erasmo, Downer seizes Trystan and places him into the first grade, rather than kindergarten where he was destined to be placed under his mother's care. Downer's animosity toward her daughter stems from an earlier incident when Faith was stalked by her mother's dream man: television star, Matthew Fox.
