Comment: Two hours and 33 minutes is a long time to be on the edge of your seat, but this one sets the record for that experience. A wide range of emotions will flood through you in this realistic and well-acted, plot-twisting, thriller about the investigation of two abducted kids. What could/would you do if they were yours?
