Following the abduction and murder of his nine-year-old daughter Jessica, Florida truck driver Mark Lunsford transforms himself into one of America’s most formidable child-protection crusaders. This film follows the grieving father’s journey to seek justice for his daughter and protection for other children. After passing "Jessica's Law" in his own state (also known as the Jessica Lunsford Act, which enforces strict penalties for sex offenders), Lunsford goes head to head with lawmakers around the country, urging other states to follow suit. Faced with public criticism and other controversies, he perseveres, determined to make a difference. From blue-collar beginnings to Capitol Hill, JESSIE'S DAD is an inspirational true story you will not forget.

Jessie's Dad played a great role in helping influence awareness and significance of child protection, when it got released, it took the cause by storm. However, despite the great effort of the film and its popularity, child protection cause has become pale over the years. The cause has lost its grip domestically among people, politicians and the media, but hundreds of dangerous predators, who prey upon children still remain openly free in high numbers on U.S. soil . They are still lurking, planning their next hunt and dumping more bodies in our next door backyards like Jessie's murderer, who was Lunsford's neighbor. The film did its job by spreading about this cause across the country and the world, but we also have the responsibility to do our jobs by remaining alerted and serious about this issue. We must continue to spread the message of Jessie's Dad and prevent the next hunt of a child predator from being successful. This issue is as important as any other issue because the fear still remains active and we must not let this cause become pale; instead, become stronger and visible.
