What is Searching about?

In San Jose, California, David Kim (John Cho) is shown looking through photographs and videos of his daughter Margot (Michelle La) and his wife Pamela (Sara Sohn) at various times in Margot's childhood as a happy, close family. Pamela was diagnosed with lymphoma and died right before Margot enters high school.
One night, Margot goes to a friend's house for a study group. While David sleeps, Margot attempts to call him three times. The next morning, David is unable to find Margot but assumes she has risen early to go to school. Later, he calls Margot's piano instructor but is informed that Margot cancelled her lessons six months ago. David discovers that Margot was pocketing the money for the lessons and transferring it to a now-deleted Venmo account. Realizing that Margot is missing, David calls the police. The case is assigned to Detective (Debra Messing) Rosemary Vick, who asks for information about Margot's personality and friendships. David manages to access Margot's accounts, including Facebook, and speaks to her contacts, but he learns that Margot had become a loner since Pamela's death. Vick calls to report that Margot made a fake ID for herself and shows traffic-camera footage of Margot's car at a highway junction outside of the city, suggesting that Margot may have run away.
David, unconvinced, discovers that Margot was using a live streaming site called YouCast and that she frequently spoke to a young woman called "fish_n_chips". Vick investigates this and reports back that fish_n_chips is innocent, having been sighted in Pittsburgh at the time of the disappearance. From Margot's Tumblr account, David finds that Margot frequently visited Barbosa Lake, which is near the highway juncture where she was last seen. He drives to the lake and finds Margot's PokΓ©mon keychain on the ground. The police arrive and locate Margot's car underwater. Margot's body is not inside, but there is an envelope in the glove box containing the piano lesson money. A sweep of the surrounding area is conducted by the police and volunteers, but a thunderstorm slows progress. Margot's body is not found.
