To Save The Children
The children of a small town elementary school are held hostage by a madman, who figures them to be the key elements in his bizarre plot to create a "brave new world."

Cokeville, Wyoming - a small, peaceful town, where neighbors know one another, a single officer patrols the area, and guns are used only for hunting. It is a community without the fears of crime embedded in urban America. Nothing could prepare the townspeople for the day when David Young marched into the elementary school with a bomb--and an insidious plot involving the children of Cokeville.

Accompanied by his devoted wife, Dorsie, and augmented by an arsenal of weapons, Young, the former Chief-of-Police of Cokeville, takes the unsuspecting children and teachers hostage. Kathi Davison, Cokeville's new Emergency Management Coordinator, must organize a plan to capture Young, who has demanded a ransom of $2 million per child. Young's daughter, Melanie, backs out of the scheme, and warns Kathi that her father will not be stopped short of completing his plan.

While Kathi and the local officials plan a rescue strategy, they must contend with the onslaught of federal agencies, who they fear will trigger Young into acting before they can stop him. The bomb is attached to Young's wrist in a manner that will automatically activate it if he is shot at or disturbed.

Inside the school, Jake Downey, a popular teacher, strives to maintain calm and order in a truly horrifying situation. He knows Young is a madman, capable of anything, but he feels the hopeful eyes of the children turning towards him. Before the day ends, they will all learn a lesson in the true meaning of courage.

As the day progresses, a dreadful realization becomes clear: Young plans to pioneer a "brave new world" in which he will be the leader of the souls of the children. The terrifying truth that Young can only achieve his goal by engineering a mass suicide in the school renders this a most bizarre and intricate hostage crisis.

Based on a true story, "To Save the Children" rises to a thrilling outcome which is as unpredictable as the events preceding it -- a conclusion to the day long "trial by terror" which is nothing short of miraculous.
