Synopsis In 1974, Patty Hearst, the heiress of William Randolph Hearst’s empire (the very one to inspire Orson Welles’s “Citizen Kane”) is kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army, a radical left-wing terrorist group. The whole world took pity on the poor little rich girl until scandal broke out: Patty had joined her kidnappers’ cause, choosing Tania as her war name and robbing a bank with the result of two dead. Her picture standing before the security camera of the bank wearing a beret and holding a machine gun is already historical, her detention/liberation and ultimate trial, a media circus. Footage from a case of Stockholm syndrome, and some questions: why did she survive the police assault that killed the rest of the group? Innocent or manipulative?.
