Storyline

When 13-year old Cathy disappears, her parents Elisabeth and Jack Porterson, who have two younger sons, Daniel and J.J. who no longer feel safe and protected, mobilize help for the search, and keep going even after the police decides it's no longer worth the resources. In time Jack loses hope and faith in his marriage as Elisabeth focuses exclusively on the search. Just when even Elisabeth's confidence is no longer unshakable, they find the corpse in one of the last places on their map. The police isn't too eager to look for the killer, but she proves just as tenacious there, concentrating on a neighbor... Written by KGF Vissers

comment on the acting
18 August 1999 | by (thornhill, ontario) – See all my reviews

The movie was well done. I was especially impressed with the little boy Daniel Magder who played the youngest child. He showed a lot of emotion and poise. The story line seemed a little suspect. Many of the low lives, seemed to be living in a fairly classy area.
