When evidence emerges that a young girl (Alexia Fast) kidnapped eight years ago by a paedophile (Kevin Durand) may still be alive, a curious chain of events is set in motion.

, but cult Canadian director Atom Egoyan customises the thriller chassis with his own peculiar preoccupations, welding on themes about voyeurism, grief and dysfunctional family life.

A couple are plagued by the disappearance of their young daughter, eight years after she went missing, and a series of disturbing incidents seem to indicate that she is still alive. Thriller, starring Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Durand, Mireille Enos and Rosario Dawson.
