Synopsis: High school seniors Nathan and Karen find a website with photos of children who are missing or believed abducted. One of the photos is of Nathan as a child, putting into question the identities of the couple whom he's always called Mom and Dad. Contacting the site to learn more only results in Nathan becoming the target of an intense, high-tech, international manhunt.

Phone use by either of them only connects directly to a man claiming to be C.I.A., in whom they find reasons not to trust. With encroaching shootouts, car chases, hand-to-hand combat and explosions around them, this seems quite much for a mere case of child abduction, and Nathan can only rely on the wrestling, boxing and martial arts skills taught by his "dad" to protect both himself and Karen as they follow a lead to find Martin, Nathan's biological fa

Nah, we're good. Right, Nathan?

Good job, son.

-Eww... God, you smell like beer.

Can I take a shower?

I just don't wanna get a phone call on night

you ride motorcycle around a tree.

I wasn't even driving.

Hey, you were out all night. You didn't call...

You're grounded for a week.

- Are you serious?

- Yeah, I'm serious.

- Why? You don't trust me?

- After last night? Not so much.

Remember that phrase, Trust

needs to be earned...

Nathan, you don't belong to the yoga.

- He did.

-Tell him.

- You went to the yoga session?

- Mom took me.

Serious?

- And he's in pain the next day. When're you taking

yoga? You didn't ask me about taking yoga?

- I had to ask you everything that I do?

No....

- Your dad needs yoga.

- He has more important things to do than that.

-You really do need yoga.

- You should try... Tell me about it.

- Oh, it'll happen till a day I take up basket weaving.

Nathan, you're on clean up duty.

Come on. Your mother cooked,

I've worked all day. What do you do?

That's right.

You're getting better and better.

It's always my fault.

Every single time, Billy.

Because it's mostly your fault, Karen.

Have you even thought about that?

All you think about is football. You know, If you're so over

with this, then just get outta here.

- You know what? Leave!

- I'm will get outta here! I don't need this.

You're in high school, Karen. I can have

any girl I want in college.

What are you looking at? Freak!

Sometimes I do feel

like a freak.

I mean, I walk around like everybody else.

But inside... It just

Feel different.

Like I'm a stranger,

in my own life.

When I'm sitting at the breakfast table

with my parents...

I'm just like...

Who are these people?

Don't you think everybody feels

that way growing up?
