A Mighty Heart by Mariane Pearl( Visual )

On January 23, 2002, Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl is to fly from Karachi to Dubai with his pregnant wife, Mariane. She is also a reporter. On the day they are to leave, Daniel carefully arranged an interview in a café with an Islamic fundamentalist cleric. When Daniel doesn't return, Mariane initiates a search. The Pakistani police, American embassy personnel, and the FBI examine witnesses, phone records, e-mails, and hard drives in an effort to discover who has him. They find that some of the reasons behind his kidnapping are based on the the U.S. abuse of prisoners at Guantanamo, because of a history of Journal cooperation with the CIA, and possibly because Pearl is a Jew. Nine days later he is murdered and beheaded. Through it all, Mariane is clearheaded, direct, and determined. Based on a true story
