Dad, I want to get out of here” - these are the last words that Juan Carlos heard his 8 year old son say in the video that the kidnappers sent to pressure him.
In Colombia, more than 400 foreign and local families receive this type of video. Kidnapping has become an industry from which guerrillas and common delinquents benefit. Each day a person is kidnapped in Colombia: Police Officers, soldiers, politicians, foreign people and even children.
4 decades of conflict - 1285 people have died in captivity.
Kidnapping, Inc. goes deep into this reality through exclusive family documents, police operations and interviews with kidnappers and victims including Ingrid Betancourt. We look at what is probably the most disgusting business in the world. A business based upon violence, abuse, and death. A business that goes after the most sacred belonging of people - their freedom.
