Gone Baby Gone

Synopsis: When 4 year old Amanda McCready disappears from her home and the police make little headway in solving the case, the girl's aunt Beatrice McCready hires two private detectives Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro. The detectives freely admit that they have little experience with this type of case, but the family wants them for two reasons - they're not cops and they know the tough Boston neighborhood in which they all live. As the case progresses, Kenzie and Gennaro face drug dealers, gangs and pedophiles. When they are about to solve their case, they are faced with a moral dilemma that could tear them apart.

The neighborhood.

The family.

People don't value the small things.

That some don't have.

The partners, united in the soul.

The cities that surround us.

I have lived in this block all my life.

As almost this whole people.

My work is to find

to missing people.

And you wonder where to begin.

I find that there are people

that they leave their cracks.

And they don't fall for them.

The city is as the house.

When it was younger my priest

he/she told me that he/she could go to the sky.

And that God left to protect

of the bad things of the world.

This is what God will tell to the children.

That they will be sheep of their love.

That will be their best service.

Until the innocence ends up.

She was always smiling.

That era her, always smiling.

Who would take to my small one?

He/she never harmed to anybody.

Whichever that are, if

you have it, only allow it to go.

Not we will make anything in your against,

if you leave it that he/she returns home.

Of agreement? Leave it that comes home.

Damned people.

This is incredible.

Who leaves their daughter that

do go out and do grab the sidewalk?

It has returned that history

of the kidnappings?

What do you make?

All in the neighborhood are watchful to that that

it is happening, we are willing to collaborate

in all that is necessary. All

we are willing, we all will cooperate.

Following this order of news, the cpitan

of the police of Boston, in charge of preventing

the crimes against smaller, he/she gave us some

how many words this afternoon, words of comfort.

We know the pain of these moments. No

we will fail. We will make everything...

Do you know the mother?

Perhaps. She was responsible for looking after the

girl, if the accent that left, is maybe innocent?

Not you how innocent it can be.

Amanda took her favorite doll

Mirabelle when it was view for last time.

This is horrible.

They looked for it to him.

Turn off it.

Does nobody come out to the door?

It is seven in the morning!

It Is You. Patrick Camsey?


We are the girl's McCready family

that it was kidnapped three days ago.

Please happen.

Allow me to apologize, it is that there are many neighbors

that they come to bother, and it is very early

for that reason I didn't leave them the best way.

- We can return later.

- Oh not, please put on comfortable.

I sit down a lot the disorder, but last night with

the work didn't give me time to organize.

My associate one will be here in a moment,

it is in the contiguous room.

So go saying

in that can serve them.

People know in the neighborhood

that he/she doesn't speak with the police?

If, one or two.

We want to hire him for

Amanda's investigation.

Is that certain?

We believe that it is better if

we hire investigators.

Then he/she should inform to the

police that we will help...

The police neither knows

as finding my niece.

Hello, I am the associate one

that I work with Patrick.

I Am Sra. McCready

this he/she is my husband Lionel.

They want to hire us for

to accelerate the investigation.

They already spoke the one

investigator of the I seal?

To the one who... ? Me...

Good, they don't seem to know...

Not they are you. detectives

of missing people?

If that is what said

their announcement of the newspaper.

If, clear, we are detectives of

missing people. I sit down it.

As he/she could tell them... we exposed this way it

because in this point of our experience...

our primary objective is to find

people that have left that they have you...

Each official of the police of this state

it is looking for their niece right now.
