Keke Palmer, Aunjanue Ellis, and Sherri Shepherd star in this Lifetime Original Movie, based on a true story. Carlina White (Palmer) was abducted as an infant by Ann Pettway (Ellis) from a New York hospital and later solved her own kidnapping and was reunited with her biological parents 23 years later. In August of 1987, new parents Joy White (Shepherd) and Carl Tyson (Roger Cross) took their 19-day-old daughter Carlina to Harlem Hospital in New York with a high fever. Ann Pettway, who had suffered a series of miscarriages and was desperate for a child of her own, posed as a hospital nurse and walked out of the hospital with Carlina hidden from view. While Joy and Carl desperately searched for their daughter over the years, Pettway was raising Carlina in Bridgeport, Connecticut – a mere 45 miles from New York City. As Carlina grew older she began to suspect Pettway was not her birth mother and launched her own investigation.
