The young couple Daniela and David are on their way home from Pakistan to Switzerland after months of travelling in a camper van. As they drive along the old Silk Road, they end up in the hands of violent criminals who abduct them and sell them to the Taliban. Eight months in captivity must pass before they free themselves from the Taliban’s clutches.
