A story of terrorism, family, and forgiveness.

For the first seven years of her life, Sulome Anderson never met her father, journalist Terry Anderson. Three months before she was born, her father was kidnapped and imprisoned by Shiite Muslim militants in Lebanon. Through hostage videos and letters, Sulome began forming an image of a perfect parent. But after his release, she soon realized Terry Anderson was not the person she imagined.

Years later, Sulome began investigating the events the led to her father’s kidnapping. In this episode, she tells her story of a personal journey into the Middle East and confronting the extremists responsible for her family’s fracture.
