College Bound is a dramatic, thriller inspired by real events surrounding a person that was a “taken” victim as a teenager. The storyline differs from most “taken” films in that the script revolves around the lives of the loved ones struggling with the loss of a daughter and friend instead of the dungeons of slavery.
Isabella’s parents, two best friends, Angie Cartwright and Jamie Peterson, church members, teammates, and others deal with the sudden loss of someone close. The inspirational message in the story reveals how kindness, strength, and a strong faith can affect everyone that Isabella leaves behind and impacts those she meets in her journey through darkness.
“College Bound” shines a light into the murky areas of human trafficking and exposes the corruption, deep injustice, and greed involved in this so-called industry. The script is faith-friendly and manages to present a story that is suitable for young teens while engaging audiences of all ages.
“College Bound” follows multiple subplots of protagonists that share the spotlight including strong female characters that are realistically flawed, compelling, and convincingly human.
