“Kidnapped” is a film about a young boy “Kevin” who gets kidnapped by a woman “Diane” who lost her family a few years prior in a house fire. Now feeling like she has been given a second chance at being a mother, she won’t let anyone including Kevin’s real mother, take another “son” away from her. She will go through the most extreme measures to ensure that she is the only woman that Kevin calls “Mom.” The story is a very unique chest match between a mother who will do anything to find her child and a woman who has nothing else to lose but the second shot at being a mother.
