Everyone knows not to leave a baby alone, even for a few minutes. But Sylvie thought, since her six-week-old baby was sleeping, that she could run to the store for five minutes. In those few moments a kidnapper enters her apartment and takes the baby!
As hours turn into days, the chances of recovering the baby grow more remote. Sylvie comes to blame herself for her baby's disappearance and so do those around her—her overbearing mother, the police and the FBI, and eventually even the baby's father. As damning circumstantial evidence mounts against her, Sylvie realizes she can no longer rely on others to help her get her baby back. Sylvie strikes out on her own, piecing together clues of a crime she must solve herself or lose her child forever.
