Standing Ground is the true story of Kay and Kerry Danes, a couple managing a security business in Laos. They are wrongly arrested and thrown into a stinking prison, accused of stealing gems from a business for which they did security work. They were charged and sentenced to seven years' imprisonment. Finally released and pardoned, they contacted many foreign embassies to advise them of their country's citizens being held for years without charge, and about those who were being treated cruelly.
