ynopsis

The film is fictional, but inspired by and is about an Islamic terrorist who captures a Dutch citizen, setting off a thrilling game of one-upsmanship, punctuated by riveting suspense and a dynamite shocker ending. Martijn (Ryan Phillippe) is on a goodwill mission in Morocco when he is stabbed with a syringe and wakes up blindfolded and shackled in a hideout. His captors (Laurence Fishburne and Gina Torres) want information - and they'll do anything to get it. So Martijn had better come up with a plan of action, because he's running out of time ... and fingers.
