A very touching story
5 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is a very touching story about a very scary issue. Once a kidnapped child is taken out of the US, US government has little control over obtaining the child. I can not imagine the pain this woman felt and the turmoil she went through to try to get her son back. She is a very strong woman to not have just gone into depression or lived in seclusion after this.

I read another review that complained of the story not being solely based on facts but I think that is just someone who did not give permission for his identity to be included in the movie and is now angry a movie was made anyway. It was his own fault he did not get credit. The basic story appears true and 90% of all based on true stories have details that are not exactly true to case.

This is a great movie about having hope and a miracle. I also saw the Beyond the Headlines story. Tiffany Rubin appears to be the ultimate loving mother. Kobe is lucky to have a mom like her.
