In 1928, single-mom Christine's (Angelina Jolie) nine-year-old son Walter (Gattlin Griffith) goes missing, and the LAPD steps in to solve the mystery. Months later, the LAPD claims to have solved the case and delivers a young boy, who says he is Walter, to Christine. Although Christine knows the boy is not her son, she takes him into her home. Finding an ally in activist radio preacher Reverend Briegleb (John Malkovich), Christine then presses police Captain Jones (Jeffrey Donovan) to keep looking for Walter. But, in the 1920s, women do not take on the police, and Christine is slandered and depicted as being an unfit mother. The film received three Academy Award nominations including a Best Actress nomination forAngelina Jolie.
