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

Solid TV movie
27 April 2000 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

However just that. Nor the act, neither the story wasn't anything special. But if you are a lonely housewife, tired of Mexican soap operas and wish to spent an afternoon watching TV this is the right film for you!
