Director: Nicole Nielsen Horanyi

Producer: Amanda Hind Alberts

Executive Producer: Trine Kongegaard, Wenche Hugaas Jensen

Genres: Documentary


In 1998, 10-year-old Natascha Kampusch was abducted in broad daylight in Vienna and held hostage for 3,096 days.

Much of her captivity was spent in a secret basement measuring five square metres, where she was both starved and abused. In 2006, Kampusch managed to escape and tell her story to the world – only to be met by mistrust and condemnation.

A powerful story with a focus on how ‘victim blaming’, conspiracy theories and lack of public empathy have impacted her life in the years following her ordeal.
