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.

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.
