Lifetime premieres another ripped-from-the-headlines movie this weekend with Girl in the Shed: The Kidnapping of Abby Hernandez. The film is based on the 2013 true-life events surrounding the kidnapping of Abby Hernandez, who was at the age of 14 abducted while walking home from her New Hampshire high school and held captive for 284 harrowing days by 34-year-old Nathaniel Kibby. At first, Kibby held Hernandez prisoner in his home, later moving her to a soundproof container on his property. Throughout, he forced her to wear a shock collar and endure psychological, sexual and emotional abuse throughout her ordeal.
