Storyline

After a car crash, Jamie, 30, comes to, locked in a room at a factory. Her son, a diabetic, is missing. A man wearing a ski mask comes into the room and tells her that she must help him find her husband who has stolen millions from his boss. He says her husband is a killer and a drug trafficker. Jamie is certain it's a mistake. Her captor insists she help him or lose her son. He brings her audio tapes made in their apartment demanding she figure out how her husband was communicating with an accomplice. She has only 12 hours before she and her son will die. Can she force herself to believe that she has been betrayed - and then what? There's no way out, yet she resolves to save her son. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

When the man is killed outside Jamie's room, his head is up against the opaque glass window in the door, and as he slides down he leaves a smear of blood from the back of his head. The only way that is possible is if the bullet exited the back of his head, which it didn't because the glass was still intact. See more »

Not a bad little psycho-drama.
1 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pretty clearly dealing with a low budget, this film manages to spend the money wisely, on script and actors who know how. A woman is abducted with her child, by people who want the money her husband stole from a crime syndicate. She thought he was just a struggling restaurant owner. What can she believe, and who can she trust? Set almost exclusively in the room in which she's detained, this turns into a pretty nifty little drama. There are a few plot holes, but they're minor, and didn't drive me out of the movie. The acting is occasionally stereotypical of a "type", but most of the characters are believable and well-portrayed.

This is considerably better than some big-budget stuff I've seen lately

  • well worth a few hours of your time.
