Absence is about three personal tragedies that are tied together in the kidnapping of a young girl from a small New York suburb. In the beginning Mary (Margaret Laney) is seen posing in school girl uniform and tied up with various bondage variations as her pictures are being taken. As far as bondage type photos go, they are tastefully arranged. Mary goes home and the phone calls begin, followed with hangs-up and messages. Mary is visibly shaken. While Mary is dealing with an apparent stalker, across town a young man runs from a hospital in tears and jumps in his car. He is crying into a cell phone, "The baby was still born". The camera flashes to a memory of Harris as a kid, then to his home with his silent wife, as they try to come to terms, over the sudden death of their baby.

A young expectant mother wakes to find her body altered, seven months of carrying a child apparently disappearing overnight. The doctors are baffled. The police are investigating the missing child. Her husband and brother are the only people that trust her.
Together they leave town to avoid the unwanted attention of the media and police in this difficult time on a get-away to take her mind off of the tragic loss.
Her brother, in an attempt to clear her name, documents her recovery to prove to the world she isn't crazy - that she couldn't hurt her baby. But the facts don't line up and something is wrong. Whatever happened to her is disturbing and it isn't over yet.
