Abandoned is a thriller film directed by Michael Feifer and starring Brittany Murphy, Dean Cain, Mimi Rogers and Jay Pickett.
Mary Walsh (Murphy) is a banker taking to hospital her boyfriend, Kevin Peterson (Cain), for a routine outpatient surgery. A nurse tells her the surgery will be exactly one hour. When she returns to take Kevin home, she discovers that he has mysteriously disappeared. An administrator (Rogers) can find no record of Kevin, and when Mary contacts the police, Detective Franklin arrives and initiates a search for Kevin but finds no evidence of Kevin having been at the facility.
Increasingly frantic, Mary is taken to staff psychiatrist Dr. Bensley (Peter Bogdanovich), who pronounces her unstable. Now she is tasked to find her missing boyfriend and prove her sanity.
Mary is then approached by an anonymous older man claiming to know of Kevin's whereabouts. A ransom of $10 million is demanded and Mary has one hour to comply or her boyfriend's life will be at risk. She has to embezzle from her bank. When she transfers the funds as directed she comes face to face with Kevin and realizes the truth.
Kevin is part of the gang who "kidnapped" him and she has been ensnared in an elaborate scheme aimed at stealing $10m from her bank. Mary is the only witness to the activity of the gang; they need to eliminate her.
Mary escapes from the one gang member (Holloway) who is to kill her; in so doing she kills him. Halloway's cell phone rings; she hears the others waiting on confirmation that she has been killed. Kevin realizes that Mary is still alive and orders the others to return and finish off Mary. The gang attempt to run Mary down in their van, but she manages to escape through a doorway prompting two of the gang to chase her while Amanda stays behind. Mary kills one of them (Cooper) and continues to evade the other.
Detective Franklin, chasing a lead, uncovers the plot and races back to the hospital. When he arrives he manages to apprehend one of the criminals. He also steps in to save Mary's life by shooting an armed Kevin.
