The film, "Cleveland Abduction" will chronicle Knight's decade long captivity at the hands of Ariel Castro who ripped her, and two other woman, away from their families, forcing them to endure years of pain and sexual abuse. The film is based on Knight's memoir Finding Me: A Decade of Darkness, a Life Reclaimedwhich was published last year.

"Cleveland Abduction," which was filmed here in Cleveland, is stacked with high-profile actors including "Orange is the New Black's" Taryn Manning, who will portray Knight, and "Breaking Bad's" Raymond Cruz, who plays Castro.  

Also appearing is Samantha Droke as Amanda Berry, Katie Sarife as Gina DeJesus, and Joe Morton as the FBI agent in charge of the investigation.
