TAKEN IN is a handmade feature film about a man who must spend a weekend alone with his estranged teenage daughter at a roadside resort. It is here that Simon and Brooklyn must confront the issues that have driven them apart, and ultimately choose how they will move forward...together or alone.

TAKEN IN was written and directed by personal filmmaker, Chris White. It was made entirely with cash and in-kind contributions from friends and family. The story (co-written with his wife Emily), was inspired by Chris’ theatre work with students at a therapeutic boarding school. The film is dedicated to his own teenage daughter, Gibson.

TAKEN IN was filmed at South of the Border, Dillon SC USA in the Spring of 2011.

TAKEN IN is a feature-length motion picture about a father and his teenage daughter—two people who can't abide each other, forced to spend an entire weekend together. They must find a way to give each other grace...to make peace with one another.

This film is a "micro-budget" movie. That means that it will cost less than a "low-budget" movie to make...it will cost almost nothing to make. A true “labor of love.”

It will exist because a hundred people wanted it to. And the team who will be making it, led by writer/director Chris White, will do the work of making TAKEN IN for those backers who believed in their story, no one else.

So buckle up! It's going to be a wild ride. 60 days from today, a work of cinema will exist that did not today.

Creation at its most pure: TAKEN IN.

Away we go!

  1. Dear Chris,
    Are you looking for music? I think you need a special opening theme. I do piano/keyboard tracks. Would love to send you audition mp3s. Recent projects are on CDBaby, at the link below. Let me know.
