Wijster , 2008, 88 min.

On 2 December 1975, a journalist is one of many passengers on the slow train that is kidnapped near Wijster by young South Moluccans. After some terrifying moments, he makes contact with the hijackers and starts acting as their go-between. Meanwhile, his wife and daughter, as well as his mistress keep themselves abreast of things through the media. The train hijacking lasts for twelve days and claims a few lives. This Telefilm is based on true events and, through its meticulous setting and historical TV footage, offers a convincing view of the dramatic occurrences.
