Girl in the Box

Girl in the Box is based on the chilling true story of Colleen Stan, who was kidnapped at knifepoint by Cameron Hooker and his wife Janice and endured a seven-year ordeal at the hands of a sadistic predator.

In the spring of 1977, 22-year-old Colleen Stan is hitchhiking to California when she accepts a ride from a young married couple, Cameron and Janice Hooker. But Cameron is obsessed with S&M and bondage, and he’s chosen Colleen to fulfill his fantasy of owning a slave.

Colleen will spend the next seven years imprisoned for up to 23 hours a day in a coffin-size box beneath the Hooker’s bed. When not incarcerated, she works as the Hooker’s slave and child-minder as she is drawn into a bizarre and complex world of obsession and fantasy.
