Destination cauchemar

Every year, millions of Canadians travel the world. Some dream of discovering new lands and eye-opening cultures, while others are on business trips, but either way, most of them get home safe and sound with their heads full of great memories. Destination cauchemar (Destination: Nightmare) is about the other kind of traveller – the tiny minority who end up in the wrong place at the wrong time – far from home and facing danger. Destination cauchemar features eye-witness accounts from people who experienced extreme situations, who survived when they thought they would die, and who showed extraordinary courage by turning out to be heroes in the face of adversity. Destination cauchemar features eight real-life journeys into the unexpected. A round-the-world trip that stops at Indonesia, the Mediterranean, Colombia, Venezuela, China, Hawaii, the Ivory Coast and finally Nicaragua. Each destination has its share of nail-biting events and heightened emotions, all relived through intense dramatic reconstructions, shocking stories and video that plunges viewers right into the heart of these foreign locales.
