Laura H. is based on the eponymous bestseller by award-winning NRC journalist Thomas Rueb, who was totally fascinated by this case. He spoke to Laura, her father and other people involved for more than 150 hours. He read police reports and WhatsApp conversations. He follows Laura's trail into Iraq to reconstruct her almost incredible story.

When a young Dutch woman escapes from the Syrian caliphate with her children in 2016 and returns to the Netherlands, this is news across all the media. There are many questions. Who is this woman? How did she get to the Islamic State? How did she escape? And maybe she was sent here to commit an attack? Rueb wants to know what inspired this young woman to travel to Syria with her husband and two young children. He also examines what happened next: Laura's conversion, the hellish life in the caliphate and her return after being found in the desert. An incredible but true story.
