***SPOILERS*** With her out of work husband Ted, Steve Bacic, leaving for a job interview Donna Saicheck, takes her son Wylie, Nico McEowen, to the bus stop on his way to school only to later find out he never made it there! It turns out that Wylie had been kidnapped and is being held for ransom with the local police helpless to do anything to save him!

It soon becomes apparent that Donna and Wylie are being used in a local reality show "How much do you love you kid" and Donna is given by the shows host Nick Dark, Wayne Knight,just 60 minutes, with a number of clues, to locate him and win $500,0000.00 for her efforts or else he'll be murdered by his abductors! Desperate to find little Wylie Donna almost out of breath in looking for him finally finds Wylie barley clinging to life with his masked kidnapper running from the scene. Told by host Dark that she's get another $1,000.000.00 if she catches Wylie's kidnapper Donna with gun in hand, given to her by the show's host, takes off after him and he gets trapped like a cornered rat as she blasts him to kingdom come!

***SPOILERS**** The big surprise in all this is that Wylie's kidnapper just happened to be his dad Ted Saicheck who's new job was working for the reality show "How much do you love your kid" who needed the money so much that he put his son's life in jeopardy! Donna got her reward of 1.5 million dollars for the suffering that she was put through and Ted ended up getting his, in hot lead, for agreeing to put both his wife and son through all this not caring if they either lived or died just to get rich off it!
