A memorable viewing experience.
31 March 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie years ago, and it has stuck with me. The plot carries many twist and angles that are above the usual petaphile/kidnapping plot-lines. Suspense levels are engaging.

Although he is allowed in the public world, armed with only a slight memory of a warm and bonding moment from his real mother, the boy must seek his home alone as he feels no one will believe him or may betray him to his captors. It is very creative how the story lays out, and the writers are applauded by this viewer for such a great closing to the story.



Well done, writers, actors, director and staff whom worked on developing this movie!
