From the incredible tabloid story that seemed too bizarre to be true, Elizabeth Smart's tragic and fascinating tale is brought to life in this dramatic recreation of the actual events.
Description by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment:
You remember the shocking headlines. The tired faces of Ed and Lois Smart on TV, pleading for the return of their fourteen-year-old daughter, Elizabeth. Now, with never-before-revealed details, comes the true story of an ordinary family forced to endure their worst nightmare. Within hours of Elizabeth's abduction—at knifepoint, from her bedroom—the Smart family was thrown into the national spotlight as an exhaustive search began. With courage in the face of tragedy, they never lost hope that their Elizabeth would be found alive. But, it's where Elizabeth was found that no one could've predicted: only miles from home, the hostage of a religious zealot. From its high-profile beginning to its unexpected closure, The Elizabeth Smart Story unfolds as one of the most remarkable, emotional, and bizarre true crime stories ever told.
