Four-year-old Nellie St. Clair is abducted in the midst of a crowd of thousands at a Canada Day celebration. The child seemingly disappears without a trace, and there is no clue as to her whereabouts. Or is there? Dozens of people see little Nellie St. Clair with her kidnappers. Most of them realize something is wrong. None of them comes to her aid. The waitress Erica recognizes the child from a picture in a newspaper but never gets the chance to tell anyone. A cross-country cyclist holds a piece of evidence that would surely lead to Nellie but tragedy strikes before she has the opportunity to deliver it. Finn Erickson, the womanizing trucker who flaunts every rule in the book, sees the child more than once on his travels but selfishly can't be bothered to intervene. Small-time criminal-drifter Jervis Strunk notices the little girl and struggles with his conscience. Should he report the sighting or continue to protect his own low profile? Eighty-year-old Dr. Booker Johnson is the only person to have meaningful contact with little Nellie, but his pleas for help are ignored. And finally, Nellie's mother Janelle St. Clair struggles to reclaim her memory of the events leading up to Nellie's kidnapping. A year after the abduction, Janelle retraces the steps of her daughter's disappearance to the child's last known whereabouts, hunting for the elusive truth that can unite her with her daughter. The search for Nellie St. Clair spans twenty years and leads to a shocking conclusion.
