If this were a movie, it would be on the Lifetime network starring Sally Struthers. Yes, it's that bad.

Detour was not as good as Derailed. The story was simply too unbelieveable. Not one of my personal favorites, to say the least.

The Breidbarts' longtime wish for a child is about to come true when they travel to Colombia to adopt a baby girl. The trip quickly goes bad when their new daughter is replaced by another baby, and the Breidbarts are blackmailed into delivering drugs in exchange for their daughter. They're surprised at their quick transformation into parents willing to lay down their lives for their child, and they wonder if that's exactly what will be required of them. Holter Graham's delivery draws listeners into the fears and anxiety of the characters as they wonder if they'll survive their ordeal.
