Plot Synopsis

The authorized movie about the harrowing kidnapping of Elizabeth Smart, told from her perspective and with her full participation. In June 2002, Elizabeth Ann Smart was a 14-year-old girl when religious fanatic Brian David Mitchell abducted her from her Salt Lake City home. He brought her to a hilly encampment where, with his twisted accomplice Wanda Barzee, held her captive. She was starved, drugged, raped and subjected to bizarre religious rituals until, nine months later, she enabled her own rescue. A film about the kidnapping was rushed on the air shortly after the incident, but it shied away from the reality of what Elizabeth went through. Now, in this new telefilm, Elizabeth herself, as a producer and on-screen narrator, explores how she survived, and confronts the truths and misconceptions about her captivity.
