Storyline

After David Kim (John Cho)'s 16-year-old daughter goes missing, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, where all secrets are kept today: his daughter's laptop. In a hyper-modern thriller told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate, David must trace his daughter's digital footprints before she disappears forever.

Goofs

Detective Vick refers to "the 101" and "the 152" when referring to Northern California, specifically San José area highways. The use of "The" is common in southern California when mentioning freeways or highways. However, in Northern California it is not used. The scriptwriters, obviously from SoCal, missed that.
