In The Moment … December 15, 2020 Show 961 Hour 2

Nearly four years in the making, Return from ISIS tells the story of an American mother and her children's journey from Indiana to the heart of the self-declared ISIS caliphate and back. Throughout the documentary, Samantha Elhassani claims she was tricked into taking her children to Syria by her husband, but where her account ends and the truth begins is a gray area.
