Abduction: The Megumi Yokota Story

Produced by Jane Campion and directed by Chris Sheridan and Patty Kim, this documentary examines the life of Megumi Yokota, a 13-year-old girl living in 1977 Japan who is abducted by North Korean spies on her way home from school. Told from the perspective of Yokota's heartbroken mother and father, who have spent 30 years holding out hope for their daughter's return, 'Abduction' is filled with surprises, mystery, and emotion. "Some tales transcend disbelief, seemingly born from the imaginations of fiction writers and dark dreams. The story of Megumi Yokota is one such story, all the more heartbreaking and disturbing for it's actuality" - James Fletcher.
