On September 11, 2001, the World changed forever when
ruthless Al-Qaeda terrorists launched an aerial attack on
the United States of America. Oblivious to the world's
terror, Kay and Kerry Danes sat half a world away, secure
in an Embassy after a terrifying 11-month hostage ordeal
in communist Laos.
As fear gripped the globe Kerry, an Australian Special
Forces soldier and his wife Kay, struggled to come to
terms with their hellish ordeal of torture, mock
executions and the helplessness of leaving behind 58
political prisoners of a long forgotten war. The couple's
hopes focused only on seeing their children again.
In the years after regaining their freedom and working to
re-piece together family life, Kerry returned to active
duty with the Special Forces and Kay turned her dark
experiences towards creating social justice, over the
years becoming a leading international humanitarian. In
November 2008, amidst haunting memories of her Laos
ordeal, Kay faced her fears and embarked on a
humanitarian aid mission to deliver life-changing
opportunities and aid to people devastated in war-torn
Afghanistan.
In an old dusty Toyota mini-van, armed only with hope,
Kay and her companions, a florist from Arizona, a nurse
from Texas, a public servant from Australia and a US
Marine Korean War veteran, drove the ancient Silk Road
amidst kidnappings, suicide bombings, carnage and chaos.
This powerful story will have you gripping your chair and
holding your breath, as you travel with Kay through
Taliban strongholds and the remote wastelands of Al Qaeda
terrorists. Her story provides a rare glimpse of places
we may never visit and the courageous Afghan people
determined to persevere against overwhelming odds.
