Episode 3 of 3

Beleaguered teachers Mark and Rachel are on the run in Manila after kidnapping the son of a prominent and vengeful politician - who keeps a tiger.

Daniel Ryan and Jade Matthew (who won the 2015 BBC Audio Drama Award for Best Debut Performance for her role in A KIDNAPPING) play two British teachers who have kidnapped a 10-year-old child.

Having successfully extracted a ransom from the boy's father, a powerful Filipino politician, getting the money and themselves out of the country is proving more difficult than they had anticipated. On the run in Manila with the authorities closing in, they are haunted by one small detail about the politician - he keeps a pet tiger in his basement.

A fast-paced thriller and a grand, comic morality tale set and recorded in the Philippines.
