(2018) (John Cho, Debra Messing) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramatic Thriller: A worried father goes through his daughter's online history in hopes of uncovering a clue that might help reveal why the teen has gone missing.
- David Kim (JOHN CHO) is a man whose joy in life seems to have been yanked away by the lymphoma death of his wife, Pam (SARA SOHN). Their 15-year-old daughter, Margot (MICHELLE LA), still lives at home with David, and he gets after her for not taking out the trash and such.
When he discovers she's failed to do so again after spending time at a friend's study group, he's miffed, and becomes more so when she doesn't return his calls or text messages. That, coupled with her having tried to call and video chat with him in the middle of the preceding night and now having been silent for hours causes him to worry and he eventually calls the police.
Det. Rosemary Vick (DEBRA MESSING) ends up on the missing person's case and begins investigating. As does David as he starts going through his daughter's laptop -- mysteriously left at home -- and begins contacting everyone he knows, including his brother, Peter (JOSEPH LEE), as well as her piano teacher, other parents and so on.
Digging through her text messages, social media accounts and more, he follows leads that sometimes give him hope and at others cause him greater concern, all while starting to believe that he didn't really know his daughter like he thought. With days passing by and Det. Vick doing her best, David wavers between thinking his daughter has run away from home and that something bad has happened to her.
