"Adam didn't come home last night."  Netta can't believe what she's hearing.  Her responsible big brother is not the type to just not come home.  It's obvious that her parents have been up all night trying to track him down.  The police try to be helpful but they think he might have just run away.  Adam wouldn't do that.  As time goes on, there are many theories investigated.  Netta doesn't want to believe that the conflict they had just left in Israel may have followed them to Los Angeles.  Could Adam have been taken by Palestinian terrorists?
