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.

The heavy social media angle to the story might be enticing to some.
For thematic content, some drug and sexual references, and for language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
