The first trailer for John Cho’s Searching has been released by Sony Pictures and it’s full of fraught anguish that fully justifies the Sundance Audience Award it won back in January.

Directed by Aneesh Chaganty who also co-wrote the script alongside Sev Ohanian, the films stars Debra Messing (Will and Grace) Joseph Lee and Michelle La on the cast with Cho.

Searching Official Trailer

After David Kim (John Cho)’s 16-year-old daughter goes missing, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, where all secrets are kept today: his daughter’s laptop. In a hyper-modern thriller told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate, David must trace his daughter’s digital footprints before she disappears forever.
