The cool evening of February 4th, 1974. Nineteen-year-old Patricia Hearst, heiress to the Hearst family fortune, was relaxing in a rented apartment on campus with her fiancee. The front door burst open and three armed people rushed into the house, dragging Patricia away in her nightgown and stuffing her violently into the trunk of their car.

She would not be heard from for two long months, and when she resurfaced, she was no longer “Patty”, but a gun-toting leftist revolutionary named “Tania”.

What on earth had happened to Citizen Kane’s granddaughter?
