Innocent, also known as Helix, is a 2009 American action drama film directed by Aram Rappaport, filmed in downtown Chicago, Illinois in one continuous take. There are no cuts in the filming. Innocent is one of the first ever feature length films to be shot in one take, and it is a kidnapping thriller that circumnavigates downtown Chicago on foot and by car.


Based on a true incident, Innocent is tale of five disparate lives that become entangled one cold Chicago morning. Told in real-time, Innocent is an action crime drama shot in one continuous take without any edits. Alexa Vega stars as a young woman abducted by two desperate urban youths (Austin O'Brien, Carlo Lorenzo Garcia). A street dweller, witnessing the dramatic events, is torn between becoming involved and remaining silent. Completing the cast of characters is a corrupt cop who too late realizes the implications of his self-serving motives.
