In a quiet Idaho town, on October 17th, 1974, Jan Broberg was kidnapped by her next door neighbor and parents’ best friend. Eighteen months later, while out on bail and awaiting trial for kidnapping, Robert Berchtold abducted Jan Broberg a second time, triggering a nationwide FBI manhunt. Told through re-creations and interviews with the FBI, the Broberg family, and the kidnapper’s brother, ABDUCTED IN PLAIN SIGHT is a stranger-than-fiction documentary about the Broberg’s; a naïve, church-going Idaho family that fall under the spell of a sociopathic neighbor who will stop at nothing to be with their twelve-year-old daughter. Kidnapping, brainwashing, blackmail, alien abduction—you will not believe how bizarre this true tale of obsession gets!

Content Warning: sexual assault, child abuse.
