Forever ‘B’

In a quiet town in Idaho in 1974, Jan Broberg was kidnapped by her family’s best friend and neighbor. 18 months later, out on bail and awaiting trial for kidnapping, Robert Berchtold abducted Broberg a second time, triggering a nationwide FBI manhunt. Through threats and brainwashing, he successfully turns Broberg against her own family, while simultaneously manipulating her parents who paved the way for her abduction, in plain sight. Told through re-creations and interviews with the FBI, Jan’s parents and the kidnapper’s brother, we discover stunning gut-wrenching revelations made public for the first time. Revealed are the epic failures and untold personal dramas that point to the biggest tragedy of all – it could have been prevented.
