Meagan Good desperately searches for her missing daughter in the trailer for the upcoming Lifetime movie, Buying Back My Daughter.

Good executive produces and leads the cast of the sex trafficking drama about a mom whose teenage daughter vanishes after sneaking out of the house to attend a party.

Faith Wright plays her 16-year-old daughter, Alicia, who is being held captive inside a home. The trailer shows Alicia pounding on a door after she’s locked inside a room.

“I am a businessman and you are a valued employee,” a man tells the terrified teenager.

Alicia is forced into prostitution and told she must “do whatever they tell you.”

After almost a year of searching for the teen, Good’s character Dana finds her daughter listed for sale on an online escort website. Not knowing what to do, Dana and her husband Curtis (Roger Cross) attempt to “buy their daughter back.” During the ordeal, the couple gets help from a female police officer, played by Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix.

Part of Lifetime’s “Ripped From the Headlines” franchise, the movie is inspired by actual events of mothers who fight back when their teenage daughters are trafficked online.

The film marks Good’s latest project with the network after she previously starred in and produced Death Saved My Life and Love By the 10th Date.

Buying Back My Daughter is produced by Front Street Pictures for distribution by Lifetime. Charles Cooper serves as producer. In addition to Meagan Good, executive producers include Orly Adelson, Allen Lewis and James Jope as co-executive producer. Troy Scott directs from a script written by Barbara Marshall.

The movie premieres Saturday, Oct. 7 at 8p/7c on Lifetime.
