With unparalleled access, director and childhood friend Brian Oakes captures intimate interviews with family, friends and fellow journalists that reveal the untold details of Foley’s life and the horrors of his captivity with chilling immediacy. A heartbreaking portrait, Jim: The James Foley Story chronicles the bravery and pain at the dawn of the war with Daesh.
