Storyline

When 10-year old Olivia's Mom goes on a business trip for the weekend, she leaves Olivia home alone with her 17-year-old brother Miles in charge. The first night, Olivia falls asleep on the couch, and wakes up, not realizing how late it is. She walks her dog Charlie without Miles knowing, and witnesses a young woman being kidnapped on the empty New York City streets. Olivia runs home and tells Miles, but he doesn't believe her. The next morning, she explains what happened to local cops, and they don't believe her either! Only a cynical female detective named Dottie (played by Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon) listens to Olivia, but she too is skeptical. Undaunted, Olivia bravely launches her own investigation, putting herself into perilous situations. Her can-do spirit ignites one extraordinary adventure after another. Can she outwit the bad guys and convince her brother and Dottie of the truth in time to save the day?

Great story telling with a New York flair. Ripley Sobo is an extremely talented kid that you'll be seeing for many years to come. And "what's with the rabbit?" lol adorable!

Susan Sarandon is funny and plays a compassionate NYPD Detective yet tough enough to get the job done.

Lev Gorn is hilarious, and I just loved seeing a diverse cast. That really captures the essence of what NYC truly represents.

I took my 10 year old niece to see this and she loved it. Totally kept her interest, and a feel good ending. A nice change from the usual pg- 13 film choices..
