Ready for a Lifetime movie Ripped From The Headlines? According to The Futon Critic, in 2006, after a brutal attack, 17-year-old Ashley Reeves (O’Driscoll) is left for dead in the woods. After spending 30 horrific hours in the cold, gravely wounded, lying in the dirt, and paralyzed, the police find her alive. Her injuries are so severe that she must re-learn how to walk and talk.
