21 Days: The Heineken Kidnapping

Genre star and film legend, Rutger Hauer stars in Arrow Films taut, true-life thriller. On DVD and Blu-Ray now.

In 1983 Alfred Heineken was one of the world s most successful brewers and perhaps the most influential man in the Netherlands and thus a target for kidnappers. He is snatched by a team of inexperienced, hot headed young criminals and is held for 21 gruelling days in a cold, cramped cell. Rendered powerless for the first time in his life, Heineken finds himself at the mercy of the gang s youngest member, who takes special pleasure in humiliating and frightening the business magnate. When the huge ransom is finally paid, Heineken is set free and begins to plot his elaborate revenge.
