The Hostage tells the harrowing story of Providencia Cigars founder Jim Faber who was held at gun point in the parking lot of a youth soccer field in Honduras. As explained by Jim:

“Through my soccer work and mission in Honduras I got close to the mayor of the town and was eventually asked if I would consider helping young members of a gang get off the street through my soccer camps and school.  Accepting the challenge, I developed a friendship with the young players and their parents as we helped to turn their lives by way of soccer.  

One day at the field, I was abducted by some men who forced me into a car. Some of the dads stepped in to help me amidst a flurry of gun fire and I was eventually able to get free.

I was later told by the US Military investigator that a Mexican gang had moved into the country and they believed it was these gang members that tried to kidnap me.”

Faber, who lived in Honduras from 1997-2011 has a deep love for the area and the citizens of this beautiful Central American country.  It is this love that drove him to create a cigar and pay tribute to those that saved his life that day.

The Hostage is produced at the La Pequena Vega Cigar Factory in Danli, Honduras.
