Manila Hostages is the story of how one man armed with a gun can create an 11-hour international media spectacle, played out live on television. We go deep inside a high-stakes hostage negotiation that offers stark lessons on what can go wrong when the police negotiators lose control and the media takes over. As ratings soar, innocent lives hang in the balance.
