SYNOPSIS Cailey Marshall, an adventurous 13-year-old, visits an abandoned house on a dare to find an item in a scavenger hunt. Unknown to her, she is being stalked. She is found hiding under a bed and taken to an uninhabited farmhouse where she is held captive. Cailey’s father, Barry Marshall, is told the only way he can get his daughter back is if he murders his brother, Stuart, within seven days. If he fails, his daughter dies. Faced with a Hobson’s choice, Barry elects to fake the death of his brother. Meanwhile Cailey’s mother, Erin, finalizes her own plan. Erin, upset with the taking of her daughter, decides to not wait on Barry to act. She decides to kill Stuart herself. Being a pharmacist, she obtains a quantity of a substance used in prison executions. She almost fulfills her plan but her conscience tears her away. One kidnapper switches his allegiance to helping Cailey escape. The escape fails, resulting in him being shot and killed by another kidnapper. With Cailey in tow, the two remaining kidnappers transport her to a town near Houston for a slavery auction but she escapes. With time running out, Erin discovers compelling evidence that shows that Stuart was complicit in the kidnapping. After she presents the evidence to Barry, he notifies the FBI. Cailey, meanwhile, resorts to scavenging and begging people at a truckstop for money to use to buy food and to call home. One man sympathizes and gives her his cell phone. She contacts her parents. The FBI set up a sting which ends with the arrest of the two kidnappers. One year later, Cailey testifies in a jury trial about her ordeal, resulting in life in prison sentences for the two women.
