Keller and Franklin were great friends, they often brought their family together for a gathering or two. one day, Keller's 6-year-old daughter Anna, and Franklin's daughter Joy, went missing together. the only lead they had was seeing a RV parked on their street earlier on. Detective Loki was assigned the case and arrested the driver, Alex for interrogation. but with no evidence to show that Alex was the kidnapper, he was soon released. panic set in and Keller became desperate and decided to take things into his own hands.
despite the straightforward plot, the little twists and tension was surprisingly satisfying. when Keller started abducting Alex for his own interrogation, things got even more complicated as we started questioning the ability of Loki as well. but of course, by following and rooting for Keller on his wild goose chase ended us in the very pit he landed himself in. while the two men were led by different reasons and motivations, they were relatable and it was easy to switch our emotions to fit into their shoes. even Alex was a splendid character with his 10-year-old brain stuck in an adult body. these little twists were the delicious parts that kept the storyline strong until the very end.
