When her five-year-old daughter disappears from the park, Carrie is distraught and she blames herself. Has her inability to read facial expressions put her child in danger?

But the police have no leads on who might have taken her and when another child is taken, it's clear Sofia is still in danger. And the threat might be closer than they think. . .
