Erin (Sunny Mabrey) met Darren (Jason Wiles) when she was a struggling single mum and he was a cop who pulled her over for speeding. Years later, and having married and had a son, Erin and Darren seem the perfect family with Darren having gone to law school before becoming a respected District Attorney. But behind closed doors things are far from perfect as Darren is a controlling, abusive husband who knows that no one will believe Erin if she calls in the cops. Whilst Erin tries to stick it out for the sake of their children, especially teenager Amy (Grace Van Dien) who is in her final year at school and just got a boyfriend, it becomes too much and so decides they must escape. Unfortunately for Erin escaping is not that easy as after they have gone he puts an Amber Alert out on them.
