Rating 7/10 A Heartfelt Story that is a must see.


Premise: When a 9-year-old girl is abducted in broad daylight, her family struggles to survive the aftermath.

I was unable to view the full film,  but the story is very touching.  This story is a family’s account of a kidnapping of their young child and their attempts to try and locate their daughter.  It is heartbreaking to see the community band together to try and find clues to reveal the kidnappers identity.  The  filmmaker reveals his vision in its very realistic approach to unfolding this tragic story.

The family continues the search and the efforts seem fruitless as days go by. Based on the trailer, it seems like everything is shot in almost a documentary style and again, adds to the realism and relate-ability of the piece. This a great job done with a low budget and I can’t wait to see the film once it is available for release.
