At age eight, Jenny Rowan was abducted and kept for two years in a box beneath her captor's bed. Eventually she escaped and, after living for eighteen months on scraps at the local mall, was put into the foster care system. Now an adult, she works as a production editor for the local public TV station, and is one of the world's good people. One evening she returns home to find a detective waiting for her. He asks if she can help with a young woman who, like her many years before, has been abducted and traumatized. Initially hesitant, Jenny decides to get involved, reviving buried memories and setting in motion an unexpected interaction with the president herself.
