Hostage Call

Synopsis

Gemma, a young au pair in New York City, finds herself caught in the middle of a hostage situation after militants capture 35 school girls - including the two daughters of her boss, Charles Hall. The kidnappers make unusual demands: they don't want money, but instead ask that the parents of the kidnapped girls, all of whom work for large investment banks, confess to their financial crimes... and provide evidence.

As the siege continues and the rules start to change, Gemma is sent in at the insistence of the kidnappers to make a delivery. As she tries to get herself and the Hall sisters out safely, Gemma uncovers a secret from the past that changes her life forever.
