Long Lost Daughter’s Plot
Before you think this is just another Lifetime movie where the daughter is the sinister one, you’ve got another thing coming! Long Lost Daughter spins the tale of a woman who finds herself coerced into replacing an obsessive woman’s daughter.
Our protagonist and the imminent victim, Michelle, wants to start a new life away from the rush of the city. So, she moves to a suburban neighborhood with her boyfriend, Jonathan.
Everything is going great as Michelle and Jonathan settle into their new home. While Michelle is familiarizing herself with the town, she meets a sweet older woman named Cathy.
Cathy is the couple’s neighbor and she makes quick friends with them. Of course, in the Lifetime Original universe, a sweet and friendly neighbor is always cause for concern.
Cathy is convinced that Michelle is her daughter who had gone missing 20 years ago. She thinks her daughter is back, and this time, Cathy is going to make sure she stays.
What ensues is Michelle’s struggle to escape from Cathy, as she’s made to play the deadly woman’s long lost daughter.
