15 year old girl goes missing. Parents have to fight to find out what happened to her. Violent , compassionate and ultimately moving.
3 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

wow, one of the best films i've seen in a while.Well acted, compelling, totally draws you in. Didn't know it was based on true events.Why have i not seen this film before now? We see big big stars churning out movies that have no substance or credibility. Absolutely a must see,dropped through the "same old movies that sell" net.Fantastic and understated acting from a very well known older cast. The younger characters, Caroline and Rachelle, were believable and very watchable. The actual murder scene was very disturbing, but you couldn't take your eyes off frightening Caroline, and Rachelle fighting for her life. Brilliant in every sense of the word.
