On a bustling Friday night in Johannesburg’s southern suburbs, the ordinary turns into a nightmare for an unsuspecting businessman. Trapped in a small room facing an ultimatum from his captors: pay up or face death. On the other side of town, in an informal settlement, another man puts in an order for a new set of “tools” for his next job. Kidnappings are on the rise in South Africa, evolving into a billion-rand industry where lives become commodities. In this documentary, kidnappings for ransom are under the microscope as kidnapper, victim and hostage negotiators share some rare insight into this growing crime trend. With support from The Henry Nxumalo Foundation for Investigative Journalism, it delves into the murky world of kidnappings.
