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.

When I watch TAKEN IN, each time Simon and Brooklyn's journey begins again...I feel like it's a stage play. I see Tim and Maddi getting into their costumes and places, ready to replay this story once more. I know where they're going...what's going to happen, of course...but it doesn't change the fact that I worry for them—characters and actors, every time.
