Elizabeth Smart is once again working with Lifetime as the executive producer for another movie. This time it is the kidnapping story called The Girl Who Escaped: The Kara Robinson Story. This is based on a true story.
Haley Harris (Sweet Tooth, Briarpatch) wrote the script, with Simone Stock (Stolen By Their Father, Fear Thy Neighbor) directing.
What Is Lifetime’s The Girl Who Escaped: The Kara Robinson Story About?
According to Deadline, Kara (Douglas) is like any 15-year-old teen. However, the South Carolinian’s life changed when she was watering the garden at her best friend’s house. Out of the blue, a man came up to her, put a gun on her neck, and took her away. Moreover, he stuck her into a plastic storage bin where she could not see what was around her. After they arrived at his apartment, he sexually assaulted her for 18 hours.
“With her survival instincts kicking in, Kara memorized as many details as possible throughout her ordeal and when her captor finally fell asleep, she escaped the restraints and fled his apartment. She was able to lead the police back to the apartment’s exact location and identify her captor as Richard Evonitz (Bruun), a serial killer who was also responsible for the unsolved murders of at least three other young girls.”
When Can You Watch The Girl Who Escaped: The Kara Robinson Story?
The premiere of The Girl Who Escaped: The Kara Robinson Story is on Saturday, February 11, at 8 p.m., Eastern, on Lifetime.
