With more twists and turns than a fictional thriller, this true story keeps us on the edge of our seats as its focus shifts from the theft of three-day-old Zephany from a Cape Town hospital to the chance discovery of a schoolgirl many years later. The emotions experienced by the girl’s two families are explored with sensitivity and insight, from loss and grief, to fraught re-connection, and, ultimately, forgiveness and acceptance. But it’s the girl’s reaction that is the heart of this story. Can the teenager embrace a new reality? Authentic, engrossing, and humbling in its exploration of love, Girl, Taken is deeply human and not to be missed.
