Synopsis

A stranger-than-fiction horror story, based on true events that shocked America in 1970.

Announced on the main evening news: a 13-year-old girl is discovered in an LA suburb after being held prisoner in a room, harnessed to a potty chair for 12 years.

Genie, as scientists later named her, was the perfectly hidden horror in the outwardly uneventful suburbia.
