It’s a spring evening in Austin, Texas, and Greg Allen is waving goodbye to his four-year-old daughter. But when she doesn’t return after a routine visit to her mom, a terrible truth begins to emerge. The two have fled to Mexico, and so Greg begins a 12-year odyssey to bring Sabrina home. When she finally arrives back in the United States, though, their reunion is perhaps not quite what Greg had been hoping for.
Sabrina Allen was born on May 30, 1997, in Austin, the capital of Texas. Her father, Greg, meanwhile, was a scientist conducting engineering research at the city’s university. He had first encountered Dara Llorens, Sabrina’s mother, through a dating agency, and the pair subsequently fell in love and got married.
However, when Sabrina was three years old, Greg and Dara’s relationship hit the rocks. Then, after a messy divorce, a court ruled that Greg was in the best position to provide their daughter with a stable upbringing. But Dara was not happy with the arrangement. And, as it turns out, the Child Protection Service would begin asking questions about Sabrina’s home life.
