Well done and unique true crime
7 October 2019 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

True stories are better. This true life kidnapping and rape movie is different from the usual abduction movie in that a mother and daughter were taken together. Also the criminal is Asian American (convincingly acted by Howie Lai). She is subjected to confinement in a cupboard and raped repeatedly. All the details shown are fascinating. Alyson Hannigan mostly associated with American Pie is well suited to this role and acts well. She can do drama too. There is a strong faith element that helped Mary get through.

One of the better Lifetime movies. Make sure you watch the beyond the headlines after.
