In June 2002, Salt Lake City was the setting for a chilling kidnapping. An angelic young girl was stolen from her bedroom in the middle of the night. The daughter of a wealthy Mormon family, Elizabeth Smart was the most unlikely of victims in a seemingly motiveless crime. Two years in the making, this film reveals what lay behind her strange abduction – a story so bizarre and unique that it almost defies belief.
