Stolen Daughters: Kidnapped by Boko Haram

HBO, BBC Two, Arte

On 14 April 2014, 276 school girls aged between 16 and 18 were kidnapped from a school in Chibok, Northern Nigeria. They were taken by Boko Haram, a violent Islamic insurgent movement, and hidden in the vast Sambisa forest.

For the first time TV cameras were granted access to the girls and in this powerful 60 minute documentary made for BBC Two’s award winning This World strand and HBO Documentary Films we follow them as they adapt to life after their traumatic imprisonment at the hands of Boko Haram.

We witness reunions with family members they have not seen since they day they went missing and the process of coming to terms with what has happened to them.
