Suspense/Thriller: While on a romantic getaway, a couple must contend with stumbling across a number of bad people operating a sex trafficking ring.
Brea (PAULA PATTON) is an investigative journalist based in Sacramento who learns from her editor, Mr. Waynewright (WILLIAM FICHTNER), that her job is not guaranteed. Things look up, however, when her mechanic boyfriend, John (OMAR EPPS), gets her a vintage muscle car for her birthday and surprises her with a romantic getaway to a remote house where he plans on proposing to her. His sports agent friend, Darren (LAZ ALONSO), arranged that getaway, and plans on dropping by later with his girlfriend, Malia (ROSELYN SANCHEZ), so that they can celebrate together.

The weekend gets off to a rocky start, however, when Brea encounters a woman in a gas station restroom, Cara (DAWN OLIVIERI), who appears to be in trouble and secretly sneaks a satellite phone into Brea's bag. After a tense encounter there with some rough-looking bikers that gets stopped in its tracks by Deputy Sally Marnes (MISSI PYLE), Brea and John are on their way. But after Darren and Malia show up, they discover sex trafficking photos on the phone Cara hid in Brea's bag, followed by Cara showing up and wanting that phone back upon orders from the trafficking ringleader, Red (LUKE GOSS). From that point on, the couple does what they can to survive the increasingly tense and dangerous situation.

Those into R-rated suspense/thriller sort of films featuring people in danger might be drawn to it, as might those who are fans of anyone in the cast.
For violent and disturbing material, language throughout, some drug use and sexual content.

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!!!
