Plot Synopsis

KIDNAP & RESCUE uses first-hand accounts and reimaginings of a kidnap, the planning of the rescue, and the recovery itself. Whether it's a high-profile executive being held for ransom, a child sold overseas or a DEA agent taken by a vengeful cartel, the hope of every victim lies in the hands of the few with the training and dedication to bring them home. These rescuers have the courage to go where no one else can -- risking violent reprisal to reclaim innocent victims, inside our borders and beyond: Brad Barker, the President and founder of The HALO Corporation, a California-based organization that provides for the safety and security for those in need and all aspects of security, humanitarian aid and disaster response; Dan O'Shea, the Founder and President of Daniel Risk Mitigation, a security risk consultancy in Tampa, FL providing risk mitigation strategies and services for clients operating in irregular and challenging environments; Ty Ritter, the founder of Project Child Save, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of child abduction through public awareness campaigns and, when necessary, finding and rescuing kidnapped children who have been sold into sexual slavery.
