So here it is, your first look at Taraji P.Henson in the Lifetime original movie “Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story.” Ripped straight from the headlines, “Taken” tells the story of Tiffany Rubin, an African American school teacher from Queens, NY, who travels to South Korea to try and rescue her son who was taken there by his father, whom she was in a bitter custody battle with. Tiffany’s ex-husband was a native of South Korea and during a scheduled weekend visit whisked their son Kobe off to his homeland. With very little money and no help from the American authorities, Tiffany eventually hooked up with Mark Miller, the founder of the American Association for Lost and Stolen Children. Together they traveled to Seoul and discovered Kobe was going to school in a neighboring town. After a careful planning, one day Rubin went into her son’s school and was able to snatch him. The two, along with Miller, ran to the U.S. Embassy before being able to return home safely.
‘Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story’ premieres Monday, January 31st at 9pm/8pm.
