Synopsis (via Lifetime)

When investigative reporter Maya learns that her childhood best friend has gone missing, she decides to cover the story herself. But just as her return to her hometown unearths memories and rekindles past relationships, it also brings a long dormant (and still totally unknown) stalker that she had years ago. As her investigation deepens, the danger strikes closer and closer to home. Will she uncover the truth about her friend’s disappearance? Or will Maya herself wind up being the next tragic news story? Corbin Reid, Jaime M. Callica star. (2022)

Recap/Wine Thoughts

The movie starts with a woman running through the woods after posting on social media. She is attacked in the middle of nowhere. Her mother calls the Sherriff when Brittney Jones doesn’t come home that night. 

Maya is a reporter who lands a cover story and a potentially big story about the mayor. She drinks some wine to celebrate alone with her laptop (She is on a trial separation from her husband Vince.) and receives a threatening email. 

Maya is taken off the mayor cast and put on the disappearance of Brittney Jones because she is a social media maven AND from Maya’s hometown.

Back in her hometown, Maya runs into a handsome ex-classmate named Jamie. He asks her out for lunch and where she is staying. Maya is staying at bed and breakfast called “The Princess and the Pea.” (Which is a terrible name.) 

Jamie calls Maya in her hotel room and REALLY pushes that lunch. While eating at a diner, he admits that he and Brittney were very close. Jamie volunteers to help look. Then he helps install security cameras in her room after someone breaks in. 

We learn that Brittney is being held captive in a basement by a hooded figure. The same person is sending Maya anonymous text messages and haunting her dreams. Her husband, Vince, also shows up unannounced. 

 Maya doesn’t have time for boys and breaks into Brittney’s ex-husband’s house to sneak around. Richard catches her and tells her that he knows who Brittney was dating before she disappeared and tries to sell Maya a picture. 

Maya meets with Jamie and tells him about Richard extorting her. He gets angry and asks Maya not to keep anything from him. 

The Sherriff calls Maya to tell her that Brittney has turned up dead and the time of death was her wedding anniversary date. Implicating Richard. That theory is short-lived when Richard turns up dead, and maybe Brittney isn’t dead after all? Then Vince is randomly hit by a car. What is this movie getting at, so pieced together?

Maya learns of the accident and jumps into her car to rush to the hospital, but someone in the back seat chloroforms her. 

Maya wakes up in the creepy High School basement tied up. She frees herself and finds a room full of pictures of her taped to the wall. She also sees the surveillance camera feed of her hotel room. Maya tries to escape, but it chloroformed again. 

It is, of course, Jamie who is behind everything. He is obsessed with Maya and did everything as a ploy to get Maya back to town. Then he had to kill everyone to keep his secret. 

Maya convinces Jamie to untie her so they can eat a romantic meal and throws hot soup on his face when he does. She runs away and finds Brittney alive. Maya hits Jamie in the head with a pipe and calls the police. 

Maybe Brittney and Maya with become friends again. Who cares, honestly. She does get back with Vince, and they are happily married. The end! 

Side Note

Minority Report: Maya, Sherriff West, Britteny, Jamie, Vince, Liz, Crystal,  

Brittney and Maya were supposed to be former best friends, yet Maya didn’t seem particularly shocked or seemed to care that she went missing.

This might be Jaime M. Callica‘s best bad acting yet?
