'Was I Really Kidnapped?' deals with a similar situation in Elle, a young woman who was abducted and tortured. In the eyes of the law, all clues point to her situation as mere fabrication, while she continues to feel victimized. Will the truth ever be revealed?

Inspired by real-life events, 'Was I Really Kidnapped?' follows the story of Elle (Michelle Mylett) who is abducted and abused. After she is tortured and tormented for days, she is released by her abductors on the roadside.
Elle is then rescued by her boyfriend Billy (Jacob Blair) and her sister Jen (Anna Hardwick). But the local detectives have a different theory altogether. They start finding Elle’s stories of abduction to be inconsistent, each version of retelling varying from the other.
The more they hear, the more the detectives are confused. This, in a way, confirms that Elle might be holding onto facts, or even, lying about her kidnapping in the first place. It might be a hard road to find the truth about Elle and identify her abductor/s.
