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.

Writer/Director Chris White:

"It might be worth stating, at the outset of this project, that...we aren't making this film as a vehicle to enter and win film festivals.

"I'm far more interested in what our backers think. They believed in the mere notion of TAKEN IN long before it existed. I want them to be pleased that they shared their hard-earned cash with us.I want them to feel like they got their money's worth.

"It is their trust that I hope to reward, not our cinematography."
