National Geographic recounts the true stories of people who ended up miles from home, in a foreign land, in a situation beyond their worst nightmares. From travelers who ran afoul of the law and landed themselves behind bars, to explorers who found themselves hostages, Locked Up Abroad tells the extraordinary tales of ordinary people locked up abroad and how they regained their freedom.
Among the twelve action-packed programs, is a terrifying tale of kidnapping and murder by guerillas in Africa; a dope deal in Kuwait that starts small and ends in hard time; an anniversary holiday in the Philippines that ends in a kidnapping by Muslim terrorists; and many more extraordinary stories of unsuspecting travelers who barely made it home.
