Seen through the lens of filmmaker Brian Oakes, Foley's childhood friend, JIM: The James Foley Story takes viewers from small-town New England to the adrenaline-fueled front lines of Libya and Syria, where Foley pushed the limits of danger to report on the plight of civilians impacted by war. The film culminates in Foley's 2012 capture by ISIS and the confusion and emotional upheaval that followed, ending in his tragic death nearly two years later. Foley's family, friends and colleagues help tell Jim's story, while his fellow hostages reveal the details of captivity with chilling immediacy. Gut-wrenching and powerful, with unparalleled access, JIM: The James Foley Story is a harrowing chronicle of bravery, compassion and pain at the dawn of America's war with ISIS" -- Container
