Taken | The Families
The Crawford Family

Owen Crawford The Crawfords are an ambitious and ruthless clan who are determined to discover the secrets behind a downed alien spacecraft.

Capt. Owen Crawford (Joel Gretsch) will stop at nothing - even kidnap and murder - to advance his career and solve the mystery behind alien existence. His determination is passed along to his sons Eric (Andy Powers) and Sam (Ryan Merriman). While Eric follows in his fatherís footsteps, Sam follows a different path to the truth - with fatal results.

Ericís daughter Mary (Heather Donahue) proves to possess both her fatherís and grandfatherís unrelentingly ambition. After linking with the government, she begins an affair with the scheming Dr. Chet Wakeman (Matt Frewer), her fatherís former head of research.

Together they manipulate their positions in an attempt to gain answers and power, regardless of the cost to everyone involved. Her devious objectives meet an unexpected conclusion when all three families - and the aliens - are forced into a final confrontation with global consequences.
