She walked in to a wireless store on Boulevard Voltaire. She pretended to be interested in the new phones, asked for the sales attendant’s number and left. Later, she called asking to see him. Ilan wasn’t suspicious. He was 23 years old, with his whole life before him. How could he have known that by meeting a beautiful girl in a café near Porte Orléans he was flirting with death? Friday January 20, 2006 Ilan Halimi, targeted by the “gang of the Barbarians” because he was Jewish, was kidnapped and taken to an apartment in the Bagneux neighborhood of Paris. There he was held captive and tortured for three weeks before being dumped in a woodlot by his captors. Found motionless and naked by the railroad tracks at Sainte-Geneviève-des-Bois, he wouldn’t survive his ordeal. In this film, Ruth Halimi revisits those 24 nightmarish days. 24 days in which she and her ex-husband Didier received nearly 700 calls, ransom demands that never ceased to change, insults, threats, photos of their tortured son... 24 days of anguish for a family waiting in silence and fear, hoping the Police could save their son. But Police Headquarters didn’t know who was responsible for his kidnapping. No one recognized in time the anti-Semitic hatred of his abductors, or that Ilan would lose his life..
