Plot: Keller Dover is facing every parent’s worst nightmare. His six-year-old daughter, Anna, is missing along with her young friend. As minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had earlier been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki arrests its driver, but a lack of evidence forces his release. As the police pursue multiple leads and pressure mounts, the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands.
