good
20 September 1999 | by Nancy-40See all my reviews

This is a very good movie that follows a 16 year old girl who goes to meet someone from the net and he kidnaps her and he runs a sex site on the net and he uses girls he kidnaps and puts them on the net. the girls Mother is out trying to find her and eventually does and just has to get her away from the guy. this movie is very good, it shows why you should always be careful of people on the net. Also the mother and daughter in the movie are Mother and Daughter in real life. i don't know if this is based on a true story but it could be!
