Hostage taking is at an all-time high around the world. Earning 1.5 billion dollars annually, kidnapping for ransom is often the most effective way for criminal groups to earn big bucks or achieve a political goal. Diving headfirst 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.
