The director said that he initially wanted to treat the subject of missing and exploited children in a documentary but in the end he decided to switch to narrative as it is closer to his heart and vision. See more »
Superb acting from a largely unknown (by me, anyway) cast. Engaging and involving story. I have to say I'm always more compelled to watch movies based on true events. This one held me throughout.
