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.

And so it comes down to this: Monday. Our last day shooting.

We have now shot the first 13 scenes of the film. Tomorrow morning, we will shoot the last two, sequentially.

The first scene will involve Tim and Maddi, and Vicky Saye Henderson...an old friend and one of the best actors I know.

I must say, the film is as well-acted as I'd hoped. And from what I've seen of the footage we've shot to date, I think I can guarantee that our actors consistently hit the right note...just enough, right when it's called for.

I am so proud of my actors. I am flattered that they have given so much to this film for so little. I am glad to call them friends and colleagues.
