|Plot Summary of Wanted!|
While visiting her father (during one of her "custody weekends" with him) teenager Alice Robie's life is altered tremendously when she overhears an intruder rummaging throughout her father's apartment. Hiding from him, the youngster begins to realize that some misfortune has befallen her father. After the stranger departs, Alice goes to meet her father at a pre-arranged destination; en route there, she hears on the car radio that her father has been murdered and she is the prime suspect in his death. E-mail has been sent to her mother wherein the girl has "confessed" to the crime. Alice then decides that only she can prove her innocence and find the real killer. The young lady must resort to deception and "borrowing" cars to bring the murderer to justice and clear her name.
