About this product
- DescriptionOn the outskirts of a small American town, a bus-load of young children is being held hostage. The hijackers are a cold and ruthless group, opposed to the secret government agency Inner Delta. At the centre of the battle are three teenagers. Miro is the terrorist with past and emotions. Kate is the bus driver, caught up in the nightmare, and Ben is the General's son who must act as a go-between. This is a tense drama, with death being the only escape.
