Synopsis:
Seen through the lens of filmmaker Brian Oakes, Foley's close childhood friend, Jim takes us from small-town New England to the adrenaline-fueled front lines of Libya and Syria, where Foley pushed the limits of danger to report on the plight of civilians impacted by war. On Thanksgiving Day 2012, Jim Foley was kidnapped in Syria and went missing for two years. Thrown into a world of false leads and misinformation, the Foley family was threatened with prosecution by the U.S. government if they paid a ransom. In Oakes' intimate film, Foley's family, friends and fellow journalists tell Jim's story, while his fellow hostages reveal the details of captivity with chilling immediacy.
Brilliantly constructed with unparalleled access, "Jim: The James Foley Story" is a harrowing chronicle of bravery, compassion and pain at the dawn of a new war on terror.
