After David Kim's (John Cho) 16-year-old daughter goes missing, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, where all secrets are kept today: his daughter's laptop. In a hyper-modern thriller told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate, David must trace his daughter's digital footprints before she disappears forever.
Interesting film about how a father uses his daughters electronic world to try and trace her after she goes missing. Not helped by the police lead officer (very interesting performance from Debra Messing), who has her own private agenda, plus issues with close family members clouding the scene. Not an outstanding film but very watchable for a bad weather day!

Different, but enjoyable.

A enjoyable thriller. A fathers daughter goes missing, as we see things unfold through his computer, I Phone and the tech world everyone lives in. Different, but enjoyable.

One issue nearly derails the film
- Searching review by DB
Very interesting and thoughtful film in the way it is presented. A little like Friend Request from a few years ago but using many more tools to weave through the story. Performances are very good from the key cast members except for Debra Messings character. Completely unbelievable, static and woefully miscast. It does look like she cannot be bothered most of the time, which nearly derails the film completely. Fortunately, the other cast members are watchable and the story holds your attention very well and you genuinely care about what happens. Highly recommended.
