Jack and Molly Campbell (Cole Hauser, Kate Levering) are right where they want to be, enjoying an idyllic life with their six-year-old son Joey (Maxwell Perry Cotton), and the close family and friends who live in their small hometown just outside of West Palm Beach, Florida. Then the phone call comes from the social worker the Campbells never expected to hear from again. Three states away in Ohio, Joey’s biological father (Barry Pepper) has just been released from prison. He is ready to start life over with his wife Wendy (Mira Sorvino) but not without their son.
A judge’s quick decision deals a devastating blow to the Campbell family: Joey must be returned to his biological parents.
In the days that follow the ruling, Jack & Molly Campbell have a desperate and dangerous thought. What if they can devise a way out? They could take Joey and simply disappear… LIKE DANDELION DUST.
Based on a Karen Kingsbury novel.
The movie was released in September 2010 and has won multiple awards.
