A mother searching for her missing child struggles with Los Angeles police officers' attempts to pass an impostor off as her son.

Christine Collins, a single mother living in Los Angeles just prior to the start of the Great Depression, returns home from work one day to find beloved nine-year old son Walter missing without a trace. Five months pass for the grief-stricken parent before the Los Angeles Police Department receives word of a boy in Illinois claiming to be her child, leading to a troubling ordeal for the fragile woman as she holds true to her suspicions that "Walter" is an impostor despite a rapidly growing media circus and the police's strong desire to consider the case "solved".
