I also did not enjoy Stolen Lives the story of a detective who had the care of his son one day leaving him in a diner while going to the toilet only to find the boy disappeared with no trace. The event destroyed him and the relationship with his wife.
He is called out to the finding of the remains of a boy and at first the hope is that these are remains of his child. The remains are those of someone who was murdered 50 years before. The film is the story of how the investigation leads to finding that the man who murdered this boy is also the killer of his son. The remains are found and he child is buried and the parents are able to move on.
