    A journeyman show, it's very much paint-by-numbers stuff, with nothing you haven't already seen in half-a-dozen similar narratives, as writersA journeyman show, it's very much paint-by-numbers stuff, with nothing you haven't already seen in half-a-dozen similar narratives, as writers Normand Daneau and Geneviève Simard take no real risks. Having said that, however, it's a well made piece of television. Confidently directed by Peter Stebbings, the material may offer nothing revelatory, but what it does offer is enjoyable enough for its own sake. An excellent Peter Coyote dominates the narrative as Henry Sullivan, a retired judge with a strained relationship (to say the least) with his son, Luke (Aden Young). When his young grandson, Anthony, disappears, and the veneer of civility erodes, the fissures running through the family dynamic begin to erupt, with blame and recrimination becoming the central tenets of familial interaction. You may guess half-way through who the kidnapper is, and yes, they're one of those Hollywood type kidnappers who leave cryptic clues everywhere, but this remains a well made, if unadventurous, show.
