Christine was a single mother. one day she returned home from work n found her 9-year-old son, Walter, missing. she reported to the police n a search was initiated. 5 months later, a boy was found claiming to be her son. she insisted that he wasn't her son n soon was dismissed by the police, labeling her sick. she voiced out in public criticizing the police. she was locked up in a government facility, whom threatened to silence her forever.
the film took quite a while convincing us she might actually be insane after the imposter claimed to be her son. with the story based on true events, it was actually terrifying knowing that the abuse of power was far more out of hand than we imagined. the main attraction of the film was a mother's determination n her will to go against the government n police department just to find her son.
