Based on true events 'Hostage' is an examination of the human cost of the Iraq conflict, through the eyes of a hostage and his captives. In a basement, somewhere in war-torn Baghdad, hostage Adam Smith (Stephen Hogan), imprisoned by Ahmed. (Elyes Gabel) is waiting to die. With no promise of rescue, no chance, and no hope, he must look into the abyss of his own personal hell. It is here, 'in the valley of the shadow of death' he must come to terms with his fate. The coalition forces battle desperately in their search for Adam but time is running out, as the tension becomes unbearable in a real life-or-death finale.
