Storyline

Inspired by actual events, this dark suspense thriller is a fictional account of actress Darcy Gold's sudden and mysterious abduction, thirty miles outside Kanab, Utah. After Darcy is kidnapped and held for ransom, her ex-lover, L.A. narcotics Detective Charlie DeSantis(Oz Perkins)arrives in the small town of Bryerson to investigate. His slick and confident demeanor instantly clashes with the town's hard-edged, no-nonsense Sheriff(Jeff Conaway). When key evidence of Darcy's whereabouts slowly begin to surface, DeSantis and Sheriff Patterson suspect that she may be involved in staging her own kidnapping and ransom. Written by Eric C. Dickson
