"A new born baby girl is taken from a hospital and is never found, twenty years on will she find out who she really is? "
Out of Sight is about a baby girl that has been abducted. We then see Katy, a young 20 year old woman, who is oblivious to the fact she is the missing girl from 20 years ago. Katy has never really felt like she knows who she truly is, and while studying criminology at university she, unknowingly, starts to look into the old case of the missing baby girl from 20 years ago. Through a series of events Katy begins to realise that she could in fact be the missing girl!
Out of Sight is a short 10 minute pilot episode for a crime drama series and is influenced by programmes such as 'Liar', 'Thirteen' and 'The Missing'. We aim to create a dark British crime drama which has been mainly influenced by the Madeleine McCann case from 10 years ago.
