The "screen life" thriller Searching focuses on the tireless efforts of distressed father David Kim (John Cho) to find his missing daughter Pamela (Sara Sohn). Fearful Pamela has been kidnapped, or has been murdered, Kim conducts an exhaustive online search for clues to the disappearance of the daughter, who he quickly comes to realize is all but a stranger to him. At times, though, Kim's crusade is more detrimental than helpful to the police investigation, which is led by Detective Vick (Debra Messing). Searching marks the directorial debut of Aneesh Chanty, who co-wrote the thriller with Sev Ohanian. "Screen life" pioneer Timur Bekmambetov (Unfriended, Unfriended: Dark Web, the upcoming Profile) produces. Searching opened Aug. 31 in Austin.
