Storyline

A flight to Chicago is forced by a storm to a layover in Detroit, to hotel tycoon Hollingsworth's bitchy wife, heiress and deputy Susanne's fury, which rises to dismissal on the spot when her P.A. Rebecca White fails to book her a fast flight or a decent hotel. Rude as ever, kind only to her equally spoiled dog, complaining to the noisy neighbors this time gets her abducted, first as nasty witness, after identification as valuable prize, by Vlad's bunch of Russian white slavers, who tricked some local girls there, supposedly for an East European contest with a shot at a modeling career. When Rebbecca misses her, the company sends a ranking executive and enlists the FBI, but only the P.A. can make sense of a cryptic clue in her recorded ransom message. Written by KGF Vissers

Well crafted story.
20 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie shouldn't be discounted because of its source — Lifetime. The screenplay was well crafted and the character arcs were excellent… direction and photography well done, and the resolution was quite rewarding and clever. We are in an age were vice is a virtue, where you can almost always be assured there is not much difference between the protagonist and antagonist. In this film there was truly a difference. Virtue is oft considered a weak trait. But that is not true, it takes guts. In this film we have a nasty boss and a young assistant who is treated badly, but in spite of that her conscience, heart, wits and courage to go beyond her hurt feelings and proves to be the difference when most people would have walked away. The acting was good, and the characters believable, and the subject one that should not be ignored. If this were a major studio movie with a big budget it would be notable hit. I give it an 8 considering it's a low-budget made for TV movie. Bravo! (Viewed on NetFlix)
