3 Years in Pakistan: The Erik Aude Story is a feature length documentary about Erik Aude an American actor, who was sent to death row in one of the most dangerous prisons in Pakistan for a crime he didn't commit. While on a business trip Erik was sent to Pakistan where he was arrested at Islamabad International Airport when they found 3.6 kilos of opium hidden in the lining of his suitcase.
Although he was told he would be hung that night for his crime, he was sent to remand where he was extensively beaten, electrocuted and water tortured for the next three days straight. He maintained his innocence and refused to cop a plea even though it meant less jail time. Once it was confirmed that Erik did this unknowingly he was offered a deal for a guilty plea. When Erik was asked the question: ' what's worth more to you, your pride or your freedom' Erik choose pride. Erik endured three years in Adiala Central Jail in Rawalpindi, one of the most dangerous prisons in the world, where he was forced to fight every day to survive. Due to an unbelievable stroke of luck through his relationship with Casting Director, Joey Paul Jensen and the help of political figures including New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, Erik was released in December of 2004. Today, Erik is a working actor, stunt coordinator and professional poker player which he learned to play while in prison from the 1986 Pan Am hijackers.
