As co-directed by Joe Wiecha and Tom Naughton, this historically-charged documentary plunges into an unusual series of military events that involved the anti-terrorist squad known as the Royal Dutch Marines (RDM). In the crisis in question, the RDM was faced with a nightmare that erupted when South Moluccan terrorists assumed control of not one but two targets, concurrently - a primary school full of children and a commuter train loaded with passengers - making them doubly difficult to stop. Naughton and Wiecha recount this horrifying yet gripping story, fixing a keen eye on the details.
