Movie Details

Jim Caviezel narrates this documentary exploring the story of eight Shelter Now International Aid workers and their 16 Afghan coworkers, who were arrested by the Taliban in the summer of 2001, and accused of attempting to convert Muslims to Christianity. Their story making international headlines, the group spent over 100 days in captivity. Some saw their arrest as justified, citing that they weren't aid workers at all, but instead missionaries operating under a false pretence. Others cried out for justice, calling for their immediate release. Interrogated and taken before the Taliban Supreme Court, the accused began to feel as if they'd been abandoned by the world. Then on September 11, 2001, their story would be shadowed by a catastrophe the likes of which the United States had never witnessed. Incredibly, the twenty-four captives lived to tell their remarkable story. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
