Gabrielle Union?s Shaun Russell finds herself in a sticky situation when her children are held hostage and only she can save them. Grieving the recent loss of her father, single mother Shaun, is tasked with clearing out his vacant Malibu property. One day, Shaun takes her two children, Glover (Seth Carr) and Jasmine (Ajiona Alexus) along with her to the mansion in order to do just that. However, on the same day, the secluded and very secure estate becomes the target of a organised group of violent criminals who are determined to rid the property of, and make off with, its wealth. The burglars manage to lock Shaun out of the house, while holding her two children hostage. The only way she's able to free them is if she reveals the location of her late father's riches.

Trivia Breaking In

The nature of the events that occur in 'Breaking in' remind of the situation that Jodie Foster and her daughter live in 'The Panic Room' directed by David Fincher. When Shaun escapes from the house, she is barefoot; however, when he returns he has shoes. After Shaun deactivates the electrical panel, the power is restored in a few minutes. The truth is that this would have required work hours carried out by a trained electrician to reconnect all the switches.
