The day he receives his driver's license back following a six month suspension for reckless driving, nineteen year old Joe Spring, with his parents' reluctant blessing, leaves their Aldergrove, British Columbia home on Friday night following work for the several hours drive to Quesnel, British Columbia for a party, he stating that he will be home on Monday. He promises to telephone his mother, Teresa Spring, once he arrives in Quesnel the following morning. But she never receives the telephone call, he doesn't answer her repeated calls, and subsequently she receives a call from Joe's stoned friend Eric in Quesnel stating that Joe never made it to the party. Teresa feels the need to do something to locate Joe, which is made all the more difficult because of husband Tim Spring's more relaxed attitude thus far about Joe's whereabouts. Tim, who has been out of work now for several years, has basically shut down in life, which has affected his relationship with his entire family. The ... Written by Huggo

Good Movie
23 April 2006 | by moe_z24See all my reviews

This is a pretty good movie. It has a good story and good acting. It's based on a true story a son, Joe Spring, who goes missing after he doesn't return home when he said he would. His mother, Teresa Spring(Kelly Rowan from Fox's "The OC") learns that he never made it to the party he said he was going to, so she goes searching for him.

It's a different kind of movie, the kind that can teach you stuff. I think it was good because it's a Lifetime movie and they usually turn out pretty good. Next time this movie's on, I suggest watching it. I know I will. I think it can teach parents to always make sure you know where you're kids are because you never know if you will see them again.
