“Freedom is priceless, we take it for granted”Jon Carr

3 episodes of an 8 episode series shooting both the documentary and drama elements.

Looking into some of the most intense and complex hostage crises of our time, Captive retells the stories of kidnapping negotiations like never before. Using cinematic recreations and key interviews with everyone involved — from the kidnappers, to the survivors, to key negotiators and government officials – we experience the life-or-death dramas as they unfolded behind closed doors.
