|Plot Summary of Where Are the Children?|
Nancy Harmon was a housewife who took her two children, a boy and a girl, to the store to get some things and deciding she would only be in the store a minute, just left them in the car. When she came out of the store, her car was gone and so were the children. They were found days later in the water with plastic around their heads. Nancy was accused of murdering her two children and was eventually acquitted because the main witness came up missing. Nancy moved across the country trying to escape the reporters and prying eyes of the public, and she wanted to start a new life. A new life without her children. She plead her innocence but no one believed her so she just started over.
Nancy had started to get on with her life. She remarried, had two more children and the pain of losing her children was starting to go away when the horror was starting over again. Her children were outside playing one morning and when she went to check on them they were gone. Again. This time she was determined to find who was behind this but that was harder than she thought because everyone believed that she was guilty again. Nancy tries to unravel the secrets and has to face the horrors of her past to find the answers to whose behind this once and for all.
This synopsis report prepared by amy blaine
Nancy Harmon, mother of two, once "almost" convicted of killing her two small young children, is hauntingly reminded of her past when her young children go missing.
She'd run from her past and created a new life for herself in Maine, but when her children are stolen from their backyard, reality hits hard and Nancy finds herself wondering what she could be doing wrong.
Telling the police all she knows, and confessing to her past, only causes more red tape and there isn't time to accuse, her children need to be saved before they meet the same fate as her first two.
