Lifetime News – ‘Saving My Daughter’
In “Saving My Daughter,” Ashley Willis will play the role of the mother, Joanna Kennedy, whose 3-year-old daughter Chloe (Emily Skinner) went missing. Chloe will be returned six months later but when she’s 18, she will be gone missing again.
Joanna, still struggling about the ordeal of losing Chloe when she was three, will dig deeper into her second kidnapping. She will try to find out if Chloe left on her own accord or whether it’s related to a woman, probably Mandy (played by Jones) who took her before.
The film was initially called “Double Kidnapped.” “Saving My Daughter” is directed by Michael Feifer and written by Michael Perronne. Other cast members include Robert Pralgo (Tyler), Emily Skinner (Chloe), Sam Ashby (Kyle), Amar (Javier), and Laurie Fortier (Brittany).
