Screenwriter Glenn Taranto wrote his first draft of the screenplay, originally titled "The Boy in the Box", in six days over a two week period. He was inspired by the famous unsolved case of "America's Unknown Child" aka The Boy In The Box. Working backwards Glenn created an original scenario detailing how such an unsolved crime might have occurred. Should anyone have any information regarding the real "Boy In The Box" case they are encouraged to contact the Philadelphia, PA Police Department.

At the gas station Matthew pays $9.50 to fill up the Rambler. In 1958 and at $0.24 per gallon he filled up his car with 39 gallons of gas. A bit more than your typical Rambler can hold.

Josh Lucas plays the father in the 1958 case, a character named Matthew, and his three sons are named Mark, Luke, and John. Taken together, those are the names, in traditional Catholic order, of the New Testament's four canonical gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

In the 1958 scenes, the box is shown variously as painted and unpainted. In a time-lapse scene, we see the box age from unpainted raw wood to dark and moldy, but when it is being buried, it is already dark.

The highways the Rambler drives on have the wrong color striping. In 1958, the shoulder stripes were yellow and the centerlines were white. Modern embedded road reflectors can also be seen in some shots.

As John and Matt drive down the town's main street, one of the storefronts they pass has one of the modern "OPEN" neon sign in the window.

Lea Adkins: You can't do anything about losing your son. But if you loose your wife, that *is* your fault.

Tom Adkins Sr.: My biggest fear is that when I do find him, what's left of us may not be enough. I haven't been able to forgive myself, and so I push my wife away. I can't even look her in the eyes, because every time I do, I see my mistakes. So I take the risk of losing everything. Not because I want to, but because I have to. Only then will I have the strength to go to my wife and ask her for forgiveness. And I have to believe that one day she will give it to me.

Tom Adkins Sr.: He has his mother's eyes. Her hair. My face, my laugh. First time I held him I knew he was my son. The best of me and his mother. I can still see his eyes light up watching those fireworks. I gave him everything a father can give a son. And now with all this searching, being a cop, being a father, I still can't find my boy.
