A look at the October 2002 capture of a Moscow theater by 41 Chechen gunmen. Demanding the immediate withdrawal of Russian troops from Chechnya, they laid siege to the theater occupants for 57 hours. Using video taken within and outside the building, phone taps, survivors' testimony, documentarian Dan Reed recreates those tense hours and the less than wholly victorious aftermath.
