Eliott Gast, an American economist, is abducted in Europe by a shadowy anti-globalisation group. Eliott spends forty days held hostage, each moment broadcast on the internet via dozens of cameras. His captors inform him that his release depends on donations made to their cause by the millions of people watching. His mind racing, Eliott tries to understand why he is there, unearthing sins both small and large. Over the course of his captivity Eliott is deprived of his senses, one by one. His crime, his captors insist, demands justice.
A dark chiller written and directed by Simon Hynd, based on the book of the same name by Stona Fitch. Produced by Plum Films, Matador Pictures, Shoreline Entertainment and Circle of Confusion.
