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’s first production meeting saw director Chris White and co-writer Emily Reach White host co-producer Jennifer Baxley, cinematographer Daniel McCord, graphic designer Adam Robataille, and lead actors Tim Brosnan and Maddi Hoptry in their home Sunday afternoon.

It was the first time several of the company members had met.

Chris White led the meeting which coincidentally ran for about 80 minutes...his anticipated running time for the film!

During a brief discussion of his Expectations for Cast and Crew, Chris set only one hard and fast rule: “be good to each other.”
