Being neglected by her parents, 15 year old Echo (Kai Lanette) spends most of her time wandering the streets of her hometown, a slowly decaying village in nowhere, USA ... until she runs into the wrong kind of guys who gangrape (and this way also deflower) her, then leave her in the middle of the street, traumatized ... traumatized enough that she tells nobody about it, instead of completely shuts down. However, when the next few days she finds more and more urge to throw up, she takes a home pregnancyy test ... and when her dad (Rob Dale) finds out, he throws her out of her home, fearing a scandal. Having no more roof over her head, Echo has to rely on friends and relatives - but she runs out of helping hands pretty soon and soon has to revert to sleeping under bridges and the like.

One year later: Echo's situation has not improved, but she has learned to deal with it better - even if dealing with it also means she has reverted to prostitution. But at the same time she has kept her positive outlook on her future. And through all of her hardships she has kept her guitar, and playing it makes her forget everything else for a while.


The Girl Who Wasn't Missing is a radical re-cut of the quite amazing but reviled for all the wrong reasons Warning!!! Pedophile Released, which takes out one major narrative thread (the hardships of a young man wrongly convicted for pedophilia) to totally focus on the female character of said film ... and you know what, it still works quite nicely, because Bonéshin/Shane Ryan is not so much a narrative director as he is a lyrical one, relying much more on atmosphere and the emotions of his scenes than actual action - and The Girl Who Wasn't Missing looks and feels just right, always carrying the right emotions, bringing its points across beautifully, and giving heart to its grim story, thanks not only to Ryan's directing and editing though but also to Kai Lanette's completely unclamourous spot-on performance.
