Carol Delaney confronts a parent's worst nightmare when her twelve-year-old daughter and a friend go missing from a gated resort on a Caribbean island. The local police believe the girls were abducted by a global organization that has a branch on the island and is involved in criminal activities, including human trafficking. A yacht belonging to local members of the organization was seen leaving the harbor around the time when the girls disappeared, but the police find no evidence that the girls were onboard, so they can't arrest the suspects. After they have determined that the girls are no longer on the island, Carol and her husband return to New York, where they help the FBI pursue the search. As she reaches out to organizations whose mission is to rescue victims of human trafficking and rehabilitate them, Carol discovers another world outside the gate of the one she knew.
