Daniel J. (Hill Street Blues) Travanti and JoBeth (Poltergeist) Williams co-star as the parents of an abducted child in this TV movie based on an actual incident. After their son is found dead, Travanti and Williams lobby in Washington, D.C. for a bill that would allow FBI data to be used in searching for the estimated one million kids who disappear or run away each year. The well-intentioned film unfortunately melodramatizes a national tragedy.
