"They wanted her. They took her. Now, no one can save her."

Box Synopsis:
           "She was all they wanted in a woman: beautiful, alone and defenseless. Olympic medalist Kari Swenson was jogging in the foothills of the Rockies in Montana when two self-styled "Mountain Men" kidnapped her as the first step in a bizarre plan to start a wilderness "tribe" free of all society's constraints.
           Joe Don Baker plays the sheriff who leads a massive manhunt and Tracy Pollan (Family Ties) plays Swenson, a woman who must battle her strange kidnappers, the elements, and the long road back in what becomes a nightmarish ordeal. This shocking true story of abduction and pursuit riveted the nation when it filled headlines across America. Now, shot on majestic location, it once again proves the resiliency and resourcefulness of human courage under siege."
