It’s summer in Kansas, and three teenage sisters disappear from their great aunt’s home. Six weeks later, no trace of them has been found. As questions begin to be asked about the system that placed them in their relative’s care, a shocking truth starts to emerge.

In others, external circumstances may render parents temporarily incapable of caring for their child.
