Captive

Captive is a powerful personal journey about surviving the trauma of captivity and the toll conflict takes on women and girls. Filmed over four years in northeastern Nigeria, Canadian journalist Mellissa Fung meets several brave young women who have escaped imprisonment by Boko Haram and are now trying to rebuild their lives. Through their struggles, Fung comes to terms with her own past, confronting the deep trauma she thought she had long buried. Viewer discretion is advised.
