2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documentary which presents the story of Holly Collins, who, in 1994, became an international fugitive when she refused to obey the order of a family court which gave full custody of two of her children her ex-husband. Holly Collins claimed her ex-husband was abusive to her and her children. It was at that point that Holly decided she had no other choice but to take her children and flee the United States. They first hid on Indian reservations, in Mexico and Guatemala. Eventually she made it to Amsterdam where she asked for asylum. The fact that she was fleeing domestic violence and would not be protected if she were returned to the U.S., seemed ridiculous at first, but Holly had come armed with legal and medical documents. Holly became the first U.S. citizen to be granted asylum by the government of The Netherlands. She lived a quiet, low profile life for the next 14 years, until the FBI agents arrived. Hoping to return Holly to the United States to face kidnapping charges, they interviewed her now grown children. Jennifer and Zackary told the agents that far from being their kidnapper, their mother was their savior and their hero. Eventually, all charges against Holly were dropped, save one: contempt of court. In September of 2011, Holly and her children returned to the United States
