The true story of Carolyn's Raeburn's daughter who graduated from high school at the age of 16. Laura was bright, popular and enthusiastic about the future, but the summer before she was to begin college, an event occurred changing forever the lives of her and her family. Laura visited a boarding ranch in the country to learn horseback riding. And there, she entered a world dominated by a strange and fearsome woman who took control of Laura's mind. She was groomed to replace the woman's dead daughter. Carolyn spent the next five years of her life, much of her sanity and more than half a million dollars to get her daughter back.
The Carolyn Raeburn Story is based on a true story.
Did You Know?
Towards the end of the movie, after they have rescued Laura and are driving away from the ranch, the Escalade is shown in wide shots following the Odyssey very closely. When we are shown the people in the van looking back towards Laura in the third row, there is clearly no vehicle behind them. This happens several times throughout the ride. See more
