The Quinn family is an all-American family, enjoying an all-American kind of day in Chicago, when tragedy throws their world into a frightening tailspin. Marshall Quinn and his three-year-old son Jeff are visiting the Adler Planetarium while his wife, Lori, takes in an exhibit at the nearby Natural History Museum. But when the lights come up after the astronomical display Marshall turns to the seat next to him ... and discovers that Jeff is gone. It's a parent's worst nightmare come true. Marshall, a mild-mannered college professor, searches in vain for his missing son, while Lori, a homemaker adept at balancing life's many hassles, crumbles with shock. The police turn up nothing. And despite massive publicity, Marshall faces the realization that there is no help to be found anywhere except from his own efforts. Eventually Marshall uncovers a horrible truth, one where well-meaning adults hungering for a rewarding family life - people not unlike Marshall and Lori Quinn - meet suburban desperadoes prepared to satisfy the needs of willing customers at any price. And with no questions asked. Now Marshall, once a scholarly and loving man, is about to cross the line. He has vowed to do anything to find his son. Or die trying.
