Abstract This extraordinary documentary presents the psychological case histories of four hostages who were released-a French businessman kidnapped in Paris, two French journalists captured in Lebanon, and a Dutchman hijacked by Moluccans in Holland. Through expert questioning, the hostages reveal why they were seized, how they lived during captivity, what went through their minds at the time, and their feelings toward their captors and fellow hostages-several of whom were killed by the kidnappers. In particularly poignant scenes, the hostages explain how the incidents have changed their lives forever.
