In My Daughter Is Missing, Miranda Raison stars as Sara, a former hacker who is now an Internet security specialist. She goes to Belgrade with her daughter for a conference on cyber crime. While there, her daughter and her friend are taken hostage by a human trafficking ring. Sara has to save the two girls before it’s too late, using her computer smarts to stop the criminals in their tracks.

The movie, which sounds like a mix of Taken with a dash of CBS’ Scorpion, was written by House executive producer assistant Jenny Paul and directed by Tamar Halpern (Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life, Your Name Here, Shelf Life).
