16 and Missing (2015) - full transcript

Widower Daniel and model son Brandon's happiness with his second wife, a retired FBI agent, is poisoned by her spoiled-rotten, ever-hostile teen daughter Abbey, who once survived a kidnapping during which her father was fatally shot. Abbey confide only into more sensible buddy Janelle her hair-brain scheme to runaway to Arizona for her pen lover, handsome young cop Gavin. It soon becomes clear to the home-front, earlier the her, that Gavin is an alias assumed by ex-con Wesley, who has a deep, dark motive.

Weatherman: The forecast,
showers heavy at times

with occasional
thunderstorms today...

Mommy, why do you have
to go away so much?

Oh, baby,
I don't go away that often.

Yes, you do.

- ( chuckles )
- You kind of do, Julia.

Guys, I'm so sorry.

Father: Mommy has
a very important job.

I still don't understand
what you do.

She helps keep people safe.

Like me?

Yeah, just like you.

Thanks, Mommy.
I love you.

I love you, too,
sugar bear.

Ms. Foster.

Hey, Jack.

So where are you heading now?

You know
I can't tell you that.

Well, I thought maybe
you would slip up just once.

( laughs )

I love you guys.

We love you, too.

How long are you going
to be gone this time?

One week.


I'm sorry.

It's what I signed up for.

It's all part of being
married to an FBI agent.

You know, I've been thinking
about maybe asking

some of the younger agents
to cover my fieldwork,

and I could do a little bit
more work from home.

Do you think
they can handle the job?

I think it's worth the chance.

Well, let's talk about it
when you get back.

In the meantime,
you go about protecting

whoever it is that
you're protecting,

and just make sure you
come home safely, okay?

Yeah, I will.

You know, I'm gonna go
to some pretty cool countries.

You want me
to bring you back anything?


Coffee? ( laughs )

Yeah. You and daddy drink it
all the time,

so it must be good.

Coffee is not for kids,

Not even a little bit.
How about a doll?


I want coffee.

Coffee, okay.
Coffee it is. I love you.

- Love you.
- I love you, too.


Hi. ( chuckles )

- Thanks.
- I'll take this.

Bye, Mommy.
I love you.

I love you.

Be safe.

You okay, huh?

- Yes.
- All right.

Thank you.

Rain is starting to come down.
Can you believe this?

I miss Mommy already.

I know.
I miss mommy, too.

But you and I are
going to have so much fun

that Mommy will be back
before you know it, right?

- Okay.
- All right.


Oh, my goodness.

Oh, my God!
( laughs )

It's so phat.

So cool.

Oh, my goodness.
( screams )

And you're sure
you're not spoiling her?

No, I'm giving her autonomy.

Do you know how much time
that's gonna save us?

I know.
But a brand-new car?

Mother: Yeah,
a new car is a safe car.

That's true but, you know,
she's been a little--

Not today, babe.
I love that little girl.

I'd do anything for her.
You know she's had a rough time.

Thank you.
Thank you, Mom.

- Of course, baby.
- Oh.

- Thanks, Daniel.
- Happy Birthday, kiddo.

It's beautiful.

Good. It's beautiful.
It's a car.

It's dangerous, okay?
So smart and safe.

Smart and safe,
I got you, I promise.

All right.
You know, Abbey.

Just one more time
just to make sure you hear me--

smart and safe.


I promise.

So can I drive it?

Oh. Um...

It's her car.

It is.
Uh... wow.

Uh, kids, guys,
one at a time

just around the block and back,
all right?

And no distractions, no radio,
nothing like that, all right?

Smart and safe.

Yeah, I got you.


Maybe I can take you on
that date now.

- In my new car? Don't think so.
- Why not?

Grow up, Bobby,
if you wanna take me on a date,

you have to get
your own car first.

My parents aren't
nearly that cool.

Now, do you wanna go?

- Yeah, let's go.
- Let's go.

( giggles )

So are we having cake
or what?

- And ice cream.
- Cake and ice cream.

Come on, let's eat it all
before the girls get back!

( giggling )

- Ready?
- Okay, yes, let's go.

Here we go.

- ( laughs )
- Whoa.

( laughter )

please tell them to stop.

Oh, come on, Abbey,
it was an accident.

An accident?

- You always defend them.
- I don't always defend--

All right, guys, come back
and say you're sorry.

By referring to it
as an accident,

you're trivializing
what they did.

- Hey, watch your tone please.
- And now you're defending him?

Does it ever stop?

can you see what
I've had to put up with

ever since they moved in?

Can't you guys see that you
always gang up on me,

all the time?

Why are we living
in the same house together?

Can't you wait until
I go away to college?

You know what,
you keep talking with that tone,

- you're not gonna
go to college.
- I don't believe that.

I'm sure you and Daniel can't
wait till I go away to college.

In fact, you probably bought me
the car so you won't

- have to see me as much.
- Seriously? That's ridiculous.

Come on, mom.
Don't be a hypocrite.

Don't you dare talk to--

Don't you dare talk to me that
way! Okay? You're not my father.

In fact, you just stay
out of anything

that relates to my
mother and I.

You know what, Janelle, I think
it's time for you to go home.

No, Janelle, needs to see
that it's not always

as perfect as it appears
from the outside.

You are out of line!

I'm out of line?

Look what you've done to us.

You brought him and you brought
his two little brats

into our house
and ruined everything.

You know what, Abbey?

You told me
that you liked Daniel.

You told me that
you wanted me to be happy.

But what about my happiness?
Did you ever think about me?

I always think about you.

No, you don't.

I thought this
was the right decision.

It's not.

Come on, Janelle!

She's a teenager, right?

I mean, she just
is chemically imbalanced.

I knew we should have waited

till she went away to college
to get married.

No, no, we did the right thing,
we did.

She just has to...

learn to be more

( laughs ) That is the
understatement of the century.

- Happy birthday.
- Yeah.

Happy Birthday.

Let's go clean up.

I hate my life.

I feel really uncomfortable.
I think I should get going.

Did you see what they did?

They gang up on me
like that all the time.

What are you doing?

I need to talk to Gavin.

He doesn't even know you.

How can you say that?

I've talked to him every day
for the last two years.

Yeah, by email.
You don't really know him.

Did Romeo and Juliet
really know each other

before they finally
got together?

( chuckles )


So why haven't
you met him yet?

Because he thought
I wasn't old enough yet.

He wanted to wait.

- Wait until when?
- Until I'm 16.

Why 16?

16 is when I can drive
and come see him.

Well, I don't get it,
if he's 23,

why can't he come see you?

Because I'm a minor, you know?
It's illegal.

But he can still get arrested.

If he comes out here,
you gotta-- where is he again?

He lives in Prescott,

Where's that?

It's a farm town
west of Phoenix.

You're Internet dating
a farmer.

He's not a farmer.
He's a cop.

Well, he can still go to jail
for being with a minor.

- If I'm emancipated,
there's no problem.
- Okay, emanci-what?

It means that I'm legally
separated from my mother,

and then I'm no longer
a minor in the eyes of the law.

I bet Gavin figured
that one out.

You know what? He did.
So what?

Just that's a lot of work
to go through

just to see some guy
you don't even know.

Okay, I do know him.

I know...

I know everything about him.

I haven't met another guy
like him before.

I don't know.

I think Bobby Evans
is pretty cute.

Bobby Evans is 17 years old,

He's a kid.
Gavin's a man.

Gavin has traveled
the entire world already.


Gavin knows me.

He understands me.

I don't know, it just
doesn't seem right to me.

That's okay because
you haven't experienced

anything like this before.

And when you do,
you'll completely understand.

( knock on door )

Abbey? We need to talk.

There's nothing
to talk about.

There's a lot to talk about,

Come out here and let's have
a conversation face-to-face.

To tell me that I'm wrong?

I'm not gonna be happy
until he's out of this house.

He's not going anywhere, honey.
We're family now.

Just come out here,
and let's talk like families do.

he is not my family.


There's nothing more
to talk about.

leave me alone.


They'll take your car away.

Not if I'm in Arizona.

Abbey, please think clearly.
You don't know this guy.

I do know him.

how could you say that?

I'm just trying
to be a good friend.

I'm not looking for someone
to play devil's advocate.


Friends do not do that.

You're wrong.

That's what friends
are supposed to do.

Not the friends
I want in my life.

I'm outta here.

Don't you dare tell my mother.


That's how you talk
to your best friend?

Real cool, Abbey.

I don't know what's gotten
into you, but I don't like it.



- Hey.
- Hey.

Come on, honey.

She's 16, she's just
going through a phase.

She's not just 16.

She's been traumatized.

Well... I know.

But she still
has to be respectful

to you, me and the kids.

I know.

I just want you
to truly understand, you know,

what it was
that she went through.

I get it, honey.

But, uh...

I'm sorry, but from what
you told me about Lucas,

I think he would want you
to both to move on.

It's been ten years.

- Yeah.
- Yeah.

I just feel
like such a...

a bad mom, you know?

She's so angry,
and she's hurting, and...

I just feel like
this is all my fault.

Oh, I'm sure smarter people
than I am

have told you
it's not your fault.

But-- but by
the same token, we--

we can't be tormented by this
every time there's an issue.

And I'm sorry if "tormented"
is too of a strong word.

No, that's debatable.

Well, yeah, because,
you know, she--

she rules this house.

She does whatever
she wants to do.

And all I'm saying about that
is that maybe it's time

to exact a little
more control over it

before things get
completely out of hand.

Now you've just given her
some serious autonomy,

so maybe along with that,
some new rules and boundaries?

I mean,
she's a teenager.

You remember
what that feels like.

- Ugh.
- Yeah.

I mean, her hormones are raging,
her emotions are scattered,

and now she's got this whole new
sense of independence.

- It's a lot.
- You're right.

I'm gonna let her
cool off tonight,

and I'll talk to her
in the morning.

Good idea.

I tell you what,

why don't we get
a good night's sleep,

because I'm sure
everything's gonna look

- a lot better in the morning.
- I hope so. ( laughs )

And, and listen,

don't ever let me hear you say
you're a bad mother again,

'cause that's not true.

Come on.

- Thank you.
- You're welcome.

I miss you.


( engine starts )



Abbey, this isn't funny.

She left last night.

She-- she's gone.

She's gone! Mom!

She's gone!

- Who's gone?
- Abbey.

She's not here,
and her car is gone.

- Did you see when she left?
- No.

Did you see when she left?

- When?
- Last night.

- Why didn't you say anything?
- Brendan.

Because I wanted her gone.

All she ever does
is cause trouble.

Oh, she probably
just went to Janelle's house.

I hope so.

All right.

No, Mommy, wait!


Now what's this?
Here, here it is.

"Mom, I'm fine.
Don't worry about me.

I'm just visiting a friend.
I'll be back soon.

I love you, Abbey."

Damn it,
why is she doing this?

All right.
Anybody know her password?

Oh, try I-H-A-T-E-M-Y-F-A

"I hate my family"?

Not funny, really.
Does anyone know her password?

- Could be anything, honey.
- Maybe Janelle knows it.

Where you going?

- I'm going to Janelle's.
- I'll call the police.

I can't. They won't do anything.
It's too soon.

But what about your friends
at the FBI, honey?

Martin in missing persons
owes me, you're right.

( beeping tone )

I'm gonna be happy.

( shouts )
I'm gonna be happy!

I'm gonna be happy.

Janelle: All I know
is that his name is Gavin

and he lives in Arizona.

How long
has she known this boy?

He's not a boy.
He's 23 years old.

- You're kidding, 23 years o--
- Julia.

What? What?

Our daughter
just ran away to Arizona

to be with a 23-year-old man.

They've had an online
relationship for two years.

Okay, that's just...

Well, no disrespect,
Mrs. Foster,

but Abbey has
a computer in her bedroom,

a laptop and a cell phone.

Not unless you've been
monitoring her activity

every second of the day
would you have any idea

what she's up to.

Okay, well, that's the end
of your privacy, young lady.

Janelle, do you, um--

do you know Abbey's password?

your friend can be in danger.

This is not the time
to keep secrets.

You need to tell us
everything that you know.


I don't know
her Chatter password,

but I do know
her email password.

Okay. Okay.

Um, but that's not
gonna help us.

Yes, but I have a trick.
Follow me to my bedroom.

No, no, no,
you just go get your laptop.

That's right.
No more laptop in the bedroom.

You go get it
and you bring it in the kitchen.

- Wow.
- Wow.

All that you do
is enter an email address

and attempt to enter
a password.

Then, you see, it asks if you
forgot your password.

So you click that
and it tells you

to check your email
to change your password.

So then I go to her email

that will link to an option
to change her password.

But now Abbey won't be able
to get into her Chatter page.


Well, what if she needs it
while she's gone?

Nobody needs social media.

A new invention called
the phone, she can use that.

- So what's her new password?
- "Runaway" with a capital "R."

no one's gonna forget that.

enter email address
and new password,

and voila, we're in.

Julia: Gavin Brown,
is that his name?

He looks like a nice kid.

Julia: He's not a kid.
He's a grown man.

And he's a police officer.

What's a 23-year-old cop doing
with an 11th grader?

I don't know.


I can't believe she was
doing this all behind my back.

Is her life that miserable
that she had to live

some false existence?

Well, it wasn't false to her
and now that she's there,

it's all too real.

You gotta get on the phone with
Martin immediately and find her.

Who knows what
this guy's motives are?

Do me a favor, just go
to the most recent messages

He's gotta have given her
some address or something.

Prescott, Arizona.

Looks like a restaurant.

Daniel: At least they're
meeting in a public place.

- I gotta get on the next plane.
- I'll take you the airport.

- Thank you.
- Thank you. Thank you.

Martin will set a plane up
for you, right?

- Yeah, of course.
- Okay.

That's so weird.

What the--
what the hell is going on?

Julia: So you're telling me
there's no Gavin Brown

working at the
Arizona Police Department.

Martin: Well, there were
a few Browns, but no Gavins.

Julia: Can you get
into her Chatter now?

Oh, come on now, Julia.

You know our tentacles
don't go that deep.

So the NSA can record Germany's
Prime Minister's conversations,

but we can't get
into social media sites?

Yeah, that's right.

Oh... that's insane.

Well, those Silicon Valley guys
have more money than us,

so we can't even win in court.

Look, I'll tell you what.

I'll contact
the San Jose office,

see if they can help out.

Call me back
if you find anything out.

Thank you.

You sure we're not overreacting?

We don't even know
the whole story yet.

He is impersonating
a police officer.

That's bad.
She's 16 years old.

I didn't even give
her permission to go down

to the market,
much less Arizona.

No, we're not overreacting.


Definitely not.

I agree.

Have you heard from Daniel?

- Janelle: No.
- What about my mother?

I haven't heard from them,

but I'm sure your mom
is worried sick about you.

You should really come
back home.

I don't think so.
She doesn't care about me.

Gavin cares about me.

How do you know if anything
this guy has told you is true?

Why would someone lie
like that?

Are you really that stupid?

Okay, yeah.
Yeah, I guess I am.

You're a pretty
16-year-old girl.

He wants his way with you.

You're just jealous because
you don't have a boyfriend.

No, I'm not.
I'm perfectly happy.

What's wrong with you
that you have to drive

all the way out to Arizona
to meet a guy?

Meet a guy? I know him, okay?
I know everything about him.

We've talked every day
for the last two years.

Then why hasn't
he come out to see you?

Why are you driving
all the way out to Arizona?

He has a job.
He can't just pick up and go.

Really? That doesn't make sense.
None of this sounds right.

Please just turn your car around
and come home.

You know what?
I don't need this from you.

- No, you don't.
- Okay, I'm hanging up.

- Goodbye.
- Abbey--



- ( laughs )
- Hey.

What's wrong?

You look so much different
than your pictures.

Different how?


You look older.


I mean, my profile picture
was just taken a few weeks ago.

I don't know.
I just--

I didn't expect you
to look so different.

See, this is why we're perfect
for each other.

This is why we're amazing.

We have this relationship
that's based

on so much more
than just looks.

I've had the opportunity
to fall in love with your mind.

And you being gorgeous
is just icing on the cake.

Yeah, you're right.

You could literally have
the floppiest ears,

the biggest nose,
and it wouldn't even matter

because I've
already fallen in love

with the beautiful person
that you are.

I'm sorry, Gavin.

Don't be.

You're so right.

Not yet.

Why not?

This-- this isn't the right
place for our first kiss.

It's-- it's not?

No, I imagine
someplace... epic,

someplace beautiful,

you know, not the porch
of an old restaurant.

Old guys are staring
at us with dogs.

But I have the biggest day
planned for us.

So let's get going,

and then we'll end the end
of the night

with some dinner at the ranch
and some wine.

- Wine?
- Yeah, wine.

You are a grown,
mature, capable woman.

I'm sure you can handle
a little bit of wine.

- Of course, I can.
- Of course, you can.

Uh... so where's your car?

Oh, they don't let me use
the patrol car

- when I'm off duty.
- Okay, do you want to use mine?

- Do you mind?
- Do you wanna drive?

- Do you want me to drive?
- Yeah.

Then I can drive.

Hey, sleepyhead.

I'm not sleepy.

- No?
- No.

Well, you drove all night.
You must be tired.

I can't believe I'm here and--
and we're finally together.

What did I tell you?

The moment you turn 16,
we can finally be together.

And here we are.

You know that moment when Romeo
first meets Juliet?

- Yeah.
- That's how I feel right now.

I feel like we were
in this expansive room

watching you from afar,
and now suddenly, we're close.

Pretty soon I'll kiss you.

( chuckles )
Okay, that's so romantic.

It's just what I feel.

You always used to say
write how you feel.

But I have to think about it.

You can just come out
and say it with such perfection.

- I do have a few years on you.
- Okay, that's true.

And you, you are so wise
beyond your 16 years.

I swear you have the beauty
and a mind of a woman,

not a child.

That's what fascinates me
about you.

( chuckles )
So where are we going?

You will just have
to wait and see.

( chuckles )

Do you like country music?

Okay, ever since
you sent me those songs,

it's all I've
been listening to.

- I knew you'd like it.
- Yeah, I do.

Well, listen to this one.
And relax, okay?

Take a nap.

* Hello, my name is

* How's your day? They are

* So ordinary to me...

* Though, and you said then,
"Come at me" *

* Guess you weren't talking
from the old dictionary... *

* But all my life needs

* Is just you, oh-oh-oh...

* Just you...

Hey there, sleeping beauty.

( groans softly )

You were really knocked out
there for a minute.


I stopped,
and I got you some food.

I am starving!

Yeah, I figured as much.

( gasps ) Fries.

You love me.
You know me so well.

You sent me pictures of this
view, huh?

That's right.

This is one
of my favorite places.

I spend a lot of time here,

you know,
just writing, thinking.


It's beautiful.

Just like you.

And it makes quite the backdrop
for our first kiss, huh?


You okay?

Yeah, I'm just--

I'm just nervous.

Nerves are good.

Yeah, that mean that you care
and that you're excited.

Are you nervous?

I'm so nervous
with excitement

because I've been waiting
for this moment for two years.

Yeah, me too.

Is it okay?

It's all right.

Thanks for asking.

Why are you stopping?

Hey. Hey.

What's wrong?

We should probably take this
somewhere a little more private.


* Yes, you're perfect for me

* You are the air I breathe

* You're oxygen to me

Man: How you doing there,
young lady?

- Hey, old man.
- Hey.

Retired and feeling good.
How you doing?

Been better.

- You all right?
- Let's go.

Let's do what you came to do.

So what brings you
to Prescott?

I got a feeling there's more
to the story.

Got a feeling you're not
just on a little hunting trip.

It's my daughter Abbey.

She, uh, she's been talking to
this guy online for two years.

I had no idea.

She just turned 16 and jumps
in the car to go meet him.

She must really be
in love with him.

She's 16, she doesn't know
anything about love.

Besides, I have a feeling
there's something

more sinister going on.

Sinister, huh?
That's a strong word.

Yeah, he's 23.

You sure you don't wanna
maybe just break his legs?

That's why I'm here.

You could do a hell of a lot
more with what I brought you.

- Oh, great.
- Check it out.

That what you're looking for?

That's exactly
what I'm looking for.

- Do you have the rifle?
- Yup.

That's in the back, too.

Then you got all your ammo
is in the case.

You got an M-15 back there.

You really need
to pack this much heat?

It's better to be safe
than sorry, right?

I guess.
I'll tell you something, Julia.

Ever since I retired
from the agency,

life has been great.

The biggest trouble I've got

is maybe fixing a leaky roof
or a broken fan belt.

I'm glad to hear that, Monty,
but trouble seems to follow me.

Yeah, well, don't use
any of that unless you have to,

because I need somebody to take
care of me in my old age, okay?

I'm meeting a buddy of mine
at Ed's Diner.

So you borrow my truck,

and I'll have my buddy
give me a ride home.

All right.
Here it is.

All right.

You sure about this?

Hey, I'm happy to help you
any time, okay?

You ever need anything,
you call me.

All right.
Thank you.

Nope, you don't thank me.
I thank you.

You're the one that saved
my life, remember?

Yeah, well,
it's part of the job.

Well, not everybody does
their job the way you do.

I'm forever grateful,
all right?

So enough with the sappy stuff.
You got my truck.

I'd like to get it back
without any bullet holes.

- Okay.
- If you need anything, call me.

Thank you.

You won't believe this.

Julia: I can't believe
anything right now.

So we were able to extrude
some information

based off the sites and
passwords you gave us, right?

And it appears
that Gavin Brown

you ready for this?

At this point,
I prepared myself for anything.

From inside of the Arizona
State Correctional Institution.

Great, my daughter
is with a convict.

Were you expecting
anything different?

But here's the thing,
there hasn't been any activity

on the account
for the past month,

and now she's planning
on meeting with him,

so it appears
that he's been let out.

How did he have access
from prison?

Sadly, these prisoners get
access to their social media

from prison libraries,
cell phones being smuggled in,

guards giving them access,
you name it, they'll find a way.

Now this is a standard ruse
these prisoners run

in order to get a girlfriend
while they're in jail

and have someone to see
when they get out.

But how did he find her

Probably by random.

What this guys do is they send
out their feelers

to hundreds of young girls,

It's called catfishing.

All it takes is for just one
of them to bite.

Well, she bit, all right.
Where should I start looking?

Well, I would start with
their original meeting point

at the restaurant in Prescott.

In the meantime, I'll go through
some of the prison's videos,

some mug shots, cross-reference
it with his photos.

Thanks, Martin.

Hey, Julia, listen,
this is your daughter, right?

There's nothing more important.

Gavin: How'd you become
such a good kisser?

( chuckles ) I don't know.
I haven't had much practice.

you got great instincts.

Thanks. ( laughs )

It looks so peaceful.

There's a lot of character.


I bet there's a lot
of family history here.

My mother was actually born
in this house.


I bet you played
right on the steps

You're very intuitive.

I actually spent a lot of hours
playing with my father here.

Do I get to meet your parents?

I don't even know
anything about them.

Unfortunately, they--
they're no longer around.

Oh, I'm... sorry.

I guess that's why you never
talked about them.

What happened?

My father was killed.


Was he in the military?

something like that.

He was actually murdered
in the line of duty

by his own partner.

Was it an accident?

Definitely not an accident.

I'm so sorry.

And then my mother died
a couple of years later.

How did she die?

She was diagnosed with cancer,

but I think that she died
of a broken heart.

That's so sad.

I'm so sorry, Gavin.

it was a long time ago.

It's funny how that stuff
never seems to leave you.

Trust me...

I know.


My father was murdered
when I was just six years old.

You never told me that.

I was afraid to.
I thought you might not like me.

That's silly.

So I--
I got to be honest.

That's exactly what I thought.

That's why I always
Mr. Inspiring

and Mr. Optimistic
because I didn't want you

to think I was
a depressing person.

I'm sorry you had to do with all
the stories of teenage angst.

No. No. No.
I-- I liked it.

I liked being able to--
to help you.

Well, you did.

You did, 'cause if it--
if it wasn't for you,

I don't think I would have
gotten through

the last couple of years
when my mom married Daniel.

When my dad died,

it was devastating.


And when my mom married Daniel,
it was like--

It was like a dagger going
straight through my heart.

How did your father die?

Do you really wanna know?

I wanna know
everything about you.

It was ten years ago,

and I remember everything
so clearly,

like it was yesterday.

My dad and I brought my mom
to the airport

'cause she had a business trip.

Oh, my God.
Are you okay?

Yeah, I guess so.

Daddy's gonna go talk
to this guy, okay?

- Daddy--
- It's okay, no, it's okay.

I'll be-- I'll be right back.
I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry.
I'll be right back, okay?

Look, you can see me
right through the window.

Fine, just a second.

Sit tight.
I'll be right back, okay?

All right.
Just stay right there.

I'll be right back.

What are you doing, man?!
You slammed on your brakes!

Here's my driver's license?

I gotta get my registration
out of my car, okay?


Dad! Daddy!

( screams )

( screams )



Wake up, Daddy.

( groaning )

Where are we?

We're inside the van.

Who are you?

Why are you doing this?

Did he hurt you?

Are you all right?

I thought you were dead.

Oh, Daddy's fine.
I'm gonna be all right, okay?

Listen, we gotta get
out of this van, right?

I promise you...

it's gonna be all right,


( van stops )

Run Abbey, run!
Run and hide! Run!

- Run! Hide!
- Hey!

Daddy! Don't leave me!

( screams )

I'm so sorry.

My father was found
in the woods...

bound and gagged

and shot...
right in the head.

Who could do such a thing?

an animal could do that.

My mom and I had
a really close relationship

before she married Daniel.

She married him just
like that?

Must have been
very insensitive of her.

Yeah, it was insensitive.

You know, he-- he came right in
and tried to control everything.

And on top of that,
his two kids are brats.

Well, you don't have to worry
about that anymore.

And why is that?

Because you have me.

How'd I get so lucky?

We're just meant to be.

- Hey.
- What?

Let's check out the inside.
Get over here, come on.

Would you guys be okay
with peanut butter and jelly?

- Uh-huh.
- We had it for lunch.

- ( cell phone rings )
- Oh, it's Mom.

Don't say anything about
sitting on the counter, okay?

Hey, honey, you okay?

Hey, don't worry about me.

Just keep monitoring the phones,
and contact all of her friends.

Just tell them
if she contacts them,

to call you immediately,
all right?

- I love you.
- I love you, too.

- Daniel?
- Yeah?

Look, keep the kids close.

Don't go to any public places
right now, all right?

I don't understand.
Why, Julia?

Just a safety precaution.

I'll be careful.

Be careful, too.

You save some
cookies for me?


How about cookies
for dinner instead?

( light folk music playing )

How can I help you?

I'm looking for a guy
named Gavin Brown.

- I don't know him.
- Are you sure?

I've worked here for five years.
I would know.

Okay, look,
here's some pictures.

Maybe that'll help.

Let me see those pictures.

I could swear he was in here
this morning with a young girl.

Um, was it this girl?

Could be.
It looks like her.

Are they in trouble?

This is my daughter,
and she ran away to be with him.

So, yes, they are in trouble.

Well, I saw them leave
in a red car.

Right, did you see
where they went?

No, they talked outside
for a little while

and then they took off

I didn't see him drive off,

but they weren't
on the sidewalk for too long.

Um, you know, here's--
here's my card.

Call me if you think of anything
or if they come back in okay?

Of course.
I've got a daughter, too.

- I understand.
- Thanks.

Hey, Ma'am?

I might be able to help you.

Appreciate the help.

That man you were looking for,
he was definitely here today.

- Was he?
- Yep.

He met with your daughter here
just a couple of hours ago.

- Gavin Brown?
- Oh, that ain't his name.

What do you mean?

His name is Wesley Sherman.

- Are you sure?
- Yeah. I'm sure.

Known him since middle school.

That boy has always
been up to no good.

I never liked him.
He's always just a big bully.

Did you know him, too?

I might have known his father.

Yeah, he wasn't so nice either.
He was an ex-cop.

Word around town is he was
killed in the line of duty.

Did you-- did you know him?

No, I guess I didn't.
How do I find Wesley Sherman?

I think he lives alone
on a ranch out towards Sweet,

right at the intersection
of Highway 52

and the Sweet Ola Highway,
you can't miss it.

- Ain't nothing else out there.
- Thanks.

Hey, ma'am?
Be careful out there.

That boy has got
lots of guns.

He's also got my little girl.

( chuckles )

- Hey.
- Come on.

Aww. I'm so excited.

After you.







( cell phone chimes )

- Julia?
- Martin.

Hey, I still haven't
found anything.

Did Wesley Sherman
have a son?

I don't know. I think
he had a few children, why?

Did he name his oldest
son Wesley Jr.?

that case has been so long ago,

but, yeah, I remember
something like that, why?

This is going to sound crazy,

but I think Wesley Jr.
killed Lucas,

and I think he's got Abbey.

there's a Wesley Sherman Jr.

at 3003 Castillo Road
over in Prescott.

That's on the other side
of Prescott, damn it.

Thanks, bye.

Who was that?

It was a buddy of mine.

He wanted to know
if I wanted to go out tonight,

but I told him
I had much better plans.

- Hi.
- Hey.

God, you're beautiful.

I can't believe
I'm with you right now.

Not yet. Not yet.


- It's too soon.
- It's not too soon.

I've been waiting for
this moment two years.

I wanna make love to you.
I do.

Okay, it's just-- no.

I haven't done it before.

Yeah. Yeah. Okay.

I'm gonna be
really gentle with you.

I-- I don't know.

I don't know.
I don't know.

Why don't you stop thinking
for a second and just kiss me?

Feel the moment...

...and it'll just happen,

Trust me,
I have a lot of experience here,

and I'm gonna make you
feel safe.

What about protection?

- Protection?
- Mm-hmm.

We don't--
we don't need protection.

You can't get pregnant
on the first time.

- I can't?
- No, of course, not.

- It's just an old wives tale.
- Really?

Yes, really.

Hey, what about diseases?

( sighs )

- Do you have any diseases?
- No.

Okay. Neither do I.
Can you not destroy the moment?

Please be gentle.

I will.


this is-- this is--
this is your room?

Of course it is.

Then who's Wesley?


Yeah. Yeah.

I see the name Wesley
all over this room.

My dad's name was Wesley.

Why would your dad's name
be all over your room?

( sighs )
Because it is.

Is it really
that big of a deal?

- Plea-- please stop.
- Why?

Because it's too soon.
I don't feel comfortable.

Maybe this was a bad idea.

No, no, I'm just not ready
to have sex yet.

Well, if you're not ready
to have sex,

then you're not ready
for a relationship.

No, no,
just give me some time, okay?

I'm a girl.
I like to take things slow.

There's no rush, Gavin.

Okay, just be gentle with me,
and I promise in time,

we'll make love.

I love you.

And I don't--

I don't wanna hurt our chances
of being together forever.


I'm sorry, I...

I just can't believe
that you're here right now.

Where'd you go?


Hey, what time is it?

It's 11:00.

Wow, I slept for a long time,

Guess the drive
really exhausted you.

Yeah, I'm not used
to staying up all night.

What are you doing?

Just getting
a little work done.

Why don't you stay asleep
a little longer,

and I'll be in in a bit.


What are you doing?

- Nothing.
- Nothing?

Going through my wallet
isn't nothing.

You're dressed.

- Yeah, it's cold.
- It's cold.

Hey, I'm curious
about something.

- What's that?
- About who Wesley is.

I already told you,
Wesley is my father's name.

And then why does your driver's
license say Wesley,

and why did you text
my mother?

Do I really gotta
point it out to you?

You don't have to
say anything.

But I want you to.

I want you to feel like
you can be honest with me.

- But I am being honest.
- You know you're not.

Your name's Gavin,

and driver's license
says Wesley.

You know everything about me,

and-- and I'm beginning to feel
like you're not who you say are.

Well, who could I be?

I don't know.
But you're not Gavin.

Okay. You got me.
I'm not.

Gavin Brown is an alias
that I came up with

for my Chatter page,
all right?

I didn't like my old name,
so I changed it.

I used to be Wesley Sherman,
but now I am Gavin.

Is there anything wrong
with that?

What are you hiding from?

My past.

Okay, after my father
was murdered,

I was put into foster homes,
and I went from foster home

to foster home, and I was abused
mentally and physically--


I'm opening up to you,
and you're being so insensitive.

Why do you have a letter
from the Arizona Department

- of Corrections Administration?
- Really?!


Abbey, we all make mistakes,
all right?

So I made a couple
mistakes when I was young.

I got in trouble,
and now they keep tabs on me.

All right? I'm not perfect.
We are not perfect.

Okay, I know, but I came here
thinking one thing,

- and now it's changing.
- What is changing?

I'm the same person
that's been messaging you

for the last two years.

How do I know that?

It's just the chance
you're gonna have to take.

I mean,
that's the nature of love.

One person falls
in love with another,

and they end up
going out on a ride

that they can only hope
ends happily.

Hey, I love you.

And we were meant
to be together.

Age, name, places,
none of that stuff matters.

All that matters is that we
were two people

searching for the same thing,
and we found it in each other.


Just don't push me like that.

Or you'll do what?

Or I'll have
to tell you the truth.

The truth about what?

I said don't push me.
Come on.

Okay, look, what are you--
what are you not telling me?

Do you have any secrets?

Do you have a family that
you're not telling me about?

Do you have a girlfriend?
Are you a murderer?

Why did you go to jail?

You told me--
you told me that you loved me.

Why are you acting like this?

Just come here.

Come here.

( screams )


This is familiar,
isn't it?

( screams ) No! No!

( crying )

No! No! No!

That was a very nice try,


- No. No.
- ( cell phone chimes )

Please, please stop.

Did you text somebody?

- No!
- No?

Well, then who--
who could that be?


"Don't worry, sweetie,
I will be there soon."

Does that comfort you?

What's going on?!
Who are you?!

It's not time yet.

What do you--
time for what?

It is not time for you
to know who I am.

But don't worry,
pretty soon,

you and your mom
will know exactly who I am.

What the hell
are you talking about?!

What the hell are you
talking about?! Stop!

( cell phone chimes )

call the police right now

and tell them to meet me with
a large force at Lincoln Mine.

You all right?

No, I'm in pursuit
of Wesley Sherman.

- He's got Abbey.
- You got it.

You killed my father.

How could you do something
like that?

Stupid naive little girl.

I've been planning this ever
since that day you got away.

Do you not remember?

Run and hide! Run!
Go hide! Run!

Run, hide!

Hey, you are gonna
get us killed!

What's the difference?
You're gonna kill me anyways.

Yeah, well, that was the plan,
but now I haven't decided yet.

See, now that Mommy's in town,
I'm thinking maybe--

maybe I'll kill her
and let you live without parents

just like I had to.

What are you--
what are you talking about?

you're not paying attention.

Your mother murdered my father.

What?! What--

Your mother and my father
were on the force together.

Your mother went rogue
and murdered my father.

My mom would never do
anything like that.

Then why did she marry Daniel

right after your father died?

After my father died.
You killed him.

Finally a little quiet.


( Abbey whimpering )

Let her go!

We don't need to get
anybody else involved, okay?

I just want my daughter back.

Look, I know this is about
the revenge

of your father's death,
but you don't know the truth.

He was a good guy.
He was my partner,

But he let the money
get the best of him.

He went bad.

We were chasing a suspect.

FBI! Freeze!


FBI! Stop!

Backup's on the way!

Make it easy on yourself!

- Julia.
- You got him?

I got him.
Put your gun down.

Where is he?

He's not cuffed, Wesley!

- Put down your gun.
- The hell are you doing?

- We're letting him go.
- What are you talking about?

- Put down your gun, now!
- I'm your superior.

I don't take commands from you.
Cuff him now, Wesley.

I'm sorry, Julia,
that's not gonna happen.

Shoot her man,
she ain't nothing.

Calm down.
I'm not gonna shoot her.

If you don't shoot her,
we both go to jail.

- There is no other option.
- There's an option.

Cuff him now.

Cuff him now,
we'll work it out, okay?

- Shoot her, Wesley.
- I'm not gonna shoot her.

- Shoot her!
- I'm not gonna shoot her!

Don't do--

The suspect fired his gun!

I had no choice.

Two of the bullets hit
your father.

No, not that's not
what happened!

You killed my husband,

you killed the father
of my child.

How much hurt
do you wanna create, Wesley?

A world, Julia.

I wanna create
the same world of hurt

that you caused my family
the day that you--

that you murdered my father.

No, no,
I had no choice.

You're lying!

Damn it.

It's time.

No, no.

Hi, Mommy.

It's okay, baby.
It's okay.

Come on.

Hear that?
It's gonna be okay, sweetie.

I want you to watch
your daughter die.

I want you to suffer
the way that you made me suffer.

We have suffered
for ten years.

We will suffer
for the rest of our lives.

- That enough?
- Almost.

No! Gavin!

Please, stop!

My name is not Gavin.
Have you not been listening?

No, no.
No, to me, you're Gavin.

I know underneath all this rage,
you're a beautiful man.

Don't be so naive.

Gavin was created for the sole
purpose of bringing the two

- of you here today.
- I don't care!

All I know is that underneath,
that you wouldn't have written

all those things
if you didn't have a heart.

Wesley: Why don't you ask your
mother if she had some heart

on the day that
she killed my father.

We can forgive you.

My-- my mom and I
understand the pain.

- You understand the pain?
- Yeah.

You have to stop this now,
Gavin, please.

- You care about me.
- No, I don't care about you.

- You-- you love me.
- Oh, no, I don't love you.

- You love me!
- I do not love you!

( screams )

Baby, help me.

You killed my father.
You were gonna kill me!

- I love you.
- Go to hell!

( siren approaching )

- Freeze! FBI!
- FBI!

- Guys, guns down!
- It's over. It's over.


Are you okay?

You got one brave mom.

You're not gonna go
on any social media

for the rest of your life,

Julia, you had me worried.

Oh, you know, she was brave.

I mean about my truck.

( laughs )

You're gonna need a new set
of wheels for sure.

- No bullet holes, but...
- Yeah.

- It's gonna need a cleanup.
- Send me the bill.

Yeah, you got it.
Gonna leave you guys alone.

Thanks, Mom.

Good work.

Thanks, Mom.

Of course.

So how are we gonna get
my car home?

( laughs ) Your car?


You're officially grounded,

till you're 40 years old.

But, Mom, come on.

After what we just went through?

Okay. Okay.
I guess you're right.

Oh, yeah, I'm right.


Ah, there's a few people
who wanna say hi to you.

Thanks, Mom.


- I was worried sick about you.
- I'm so sorry, Janelle.

I promise I won't do anything
to hurt our friendship again.

- You promise?
- I promise.

By the way, Bobby's here.

No way, no boys
till I'm at least 18.

( laughter )

Did you catch the bad guy?

- I always get the bad guy.
- ( laughs )

- We were so worried.
- Don't worry about me.

I'll always be here
for my family.

Well, who wants
cake and ice cream?

- Me.
- Me.
