Watch Unseen in Theaters Today

Inspired by true events in Utah, Unseen is about a  teenage girl’s innocent social media mistake. Carly, 17, like most  teenagers, want to have her own money, be seen at parties, get out of  her small town and find something better, even become famous. Carly’s  way out of her current situation comes in the form of a social media  avert that she sees on her phone. An agency looking for models and  offering them a prize of $1,000. Due to some everyday white lies, Carly  puts herself in an unsafe position. Carly’s lies lead to her being  unseen, never to be seen again. The next day when family and friends  realize that no-one knows Carly’s whereabouts, it’s too late. This is  “fame lure” and can happen to any child, anywhere at any time.
