Movie Summary

Three masked men break into the home of Michelle Estey- assistant bank Vice President- and hold her and her daughter, Breea, hostage. When dawn breaks, they tape dynamite to the victims and prepare them for the ultimate demand: Michelle is going to rob her own bank, or Breea will die. Miraculously, they survive, but as the FBIs case unfolds, the case takes a startling detour. Michelles innocence is called into question, and the traumatized victim is now the number one suspect.
