BROKEN THREAD
Written by Wysteria Edwards

What do you do when the person you love the most simply vanishes?  It was supposed to be a quick errand, but now six-year-old, Sara Callahan is missing.
John Callahan is a successful Defense Attorney, who is willing to sell his soul for a profit.  When his wife, Kelly discovers his infidelity, she gives him an ultimatum: end his affair or be disgraced by a messy divorce in a conservative, unforgiving community.  To display his commitment in making things work, John takes his daughter, Sara with him to the mall to spend “quality time” and break up with his mistress in a public place.  When John takes his eyes off of his daughter, Sara disappears.  A large-scale search ensues, as the FBI brings in their top investigator, Special Agent Steve Mercer.  It is his job to weed through the evidence and question those closest to Sara:  John and Kelly Callahan, as well as their devoted, friend Sam Baker. 
Mercer becomes suspicious of Sam Baker when he witnesses the closeness of his and Kelly’s relationship.  Convinced that there is more to the story he watches as the constant pressure of the media and the ticking clock begin to unravel their tight cocoon of lies and betrayal.  As the world searches for Sara, those left behind begin to turn inward looking for someone to blame. Experience the show that the Chicago FBI called, “profoundly moving and real to life.”

“The show was riveting from the first second...the play of the news reporters off each other was almost chilling in their drama... I personally was brought to tears more than once and expectantly wondered where the twists would lead.”
Rated 3.0
“Well written. It brought about emotions from the mother that can only be empathized by those with children. Mothers will shutter at the thought of losing their child in such a horrific way... thought-provoking, admonishing individuals that the safety of their children should be their first priority. Sometimes an individual’s own self-indulgences can become detrimental to the welfare of a child.”
