Movie Info

When a documentary filmmaker profiles a star detective, her quest for the facts in a case that's forty years old leads her to a sinister truth in this adaptation of the novel by Val McDermaid. December 1963: a young girl named Alison Carter vanishes without a trace while walking her dog in Scarsdale. Detective Inspector George Bennett (Lee Ingleby) had just been promoted, and this would be his first missing persons case. It was also the case that made him a national hero. Yet despite gathering enough evidence to have his primary suspect executed, Detective Inspector Bennett never was able to locate the body of the missing girl. Four decades later, maverick filmmaker Catherine Heathcote (Juliet Stevenson) focuses her lens on Bennett in an effort to solve that lingering mystery, and discovers a troubling inconsistency in his reports. It seems that the questions raised at the time of the murder have different answers today than they did forty years ago. Perhaps if Heathcote can uncover the reason for that discrepancy, she can finally lay a decades-old mystery - and the haunting pains of a lingering tragedy - to rest. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
