**A TRUE STORY**
On June 10th, 1992, Katie Sapienza's six-year-old son was kidnapped by his estranged non-custodial father and taken to a foreign country. Katie, in a state of panic and near hysteria, hops on a plane and flies half way around the world. She presents a meaningless warrant for Massimo's arrest to the Italian court system, but is immediately "legally" assaulted by them. She is shocked to learn that the Italian judge on the case has sided with the father and makes it clear that Katie is not welcome there, nor will they return her son to her.
