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.

IMAGINE THAT: A Father-Daughter Love Story

IMAGINE THAT screenwriter Ed Solomon: "One of the things we were trying to do is tell a story about a guy who feels that he's burdened or cursed by a daughter he doesn't quite understand, but realizes that he's really been kinda blessed by that."

I suppose there is a wisp of such sentiment in TAKEN IN. I mean, I think it'd be lovely if someone walked away with that feeling after seeing the film...I just hope they look for and discover more.
