The adventure trip on a motorcycle ended up with six years in captivity with terrorists. For the first time, Johan Gustavsson and one of his fellow prisoners talk about the difficult conflicts that arose between them when they were kidnapped in the Sahara. While Johans family found solace in the fact that Johan was not alone in the wilderness, riots broke out between the prisoners. ”i´d rather have sat alone with my guards from al-qaeda,” says Johan.
