A STORY TOLD AFTER DECADES OF SILENCE

J.P. Mottu, negotiating for the life of his employee

 

A top Swiss executive finds himself in charge of saving Isabelle. After tense negotiations, he reaches an agreement with the kidnappers. But when the delivery of the ransom disastrously fails, all trust is shattered.
J.P. must act quickly – take bigger and bolder steps, and go deeper inside risk to rescue the hostage.

 

Throughout the event, audience members are called upon to make extremely challenging decisions and compare their choices to those made in the true story. This thrilling journey will reveal your risk tolerance and highlight the importance of trusting your own moral compass in a lawless situation.
