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.

Perfect weather turned blustery on our third day of shooting. But no one here is complaining.

The cold, wet weather matches the feel of Scene 8...which we shot today at the "Wild Mouse" roller coaster in Pedroland.

Lifting our rainy-day spirits is LA-based filmmaker Ronnie Gunter, who is playing "Dillon" in the film. So great to finally meet him...been a fan since seeing his film, SOLID COUNTRY GOLD a year ago.
