Is This Documentary Broken?

This series tells the true stories that would be any traveller’s worst nightmare – when a holiday in paradise becomes a journey into hell that ends up in prison abroad.

Through graphic dramatic reconstruction, each film tells the story of someone who’s been arrested and thrown into a foreign prison. It could be for smuggling drugs, falling foul of local corrupt policemen or for being duped into carrying illegal goods through customs.

In all cases, the films follow the sinking sense of horror from the build up to the moment of arrest, their journey through an incomprehensible legal process, the coming to terms with the details of life in a hellhole jail, and the devastating fall out with their family and friends.

Lucy Baker and Scott Campbell were living their dream. Working little and playing hard in Ibiza for the summer season, neither wanted the party to end so when the party moved on, so did they… but it wasn’t long before they were heading for broke.

Out of luck and out of money, the offer of the holiday of a lifetime and a healthy reward at the end seemed just too good to be true… All they had to do was bring back a little cannabis into Amsterdam, where was the risk in that?

    Who are they trying to kid? Who brings cannabis from Central America? There is no mention of their own obvious drug taking. I hope they get transferred to Scotland as soon as possible. That will teach them!

    I’m a little lost – Why would somebody need to illegally smuggle marijuana into Amsterdam? Isn’t it legal there? Is it a matter of cost?

    “… All they had to do was bring back a little cannabis into Amsterdam, where was the risk in that?”
