Anyone who has watched Netflix Abducted In Plain Sight is probably still concerned with the insanely disturbing true story that takes place about the Broberg family, in particular the then 12-year-old Jan Broberg.

The pedophile kidnapped Jan when she was 12 and then again when she was 14, and the show explains how Jan was brainwashed to believe that she was absolutely necessary if Robert were to save the Earth from an alien invasion. In her turn, her family was blackmailed by him after they both started to work together with him on an intimate level.

Abducted In Plain Sight is perhaps just the craziest real crime documentary of Netflix ever, but Jan Broberg

As Jan explains: "The mission was that I would have a child that would save the alien planet by the time I turned 16."

Jan was reportedly helpful in getting her family on board the film – as did the completely female production team of filmmaker Skye Bergman, who eventually won the trust of the family. "Jan was ready to tell her story," explained Bob (via The Telegraph). "She had already published the book and was on the speaking circuit, trying to raise awareness of abuse, but this was still not a famous case." Jan played an important role in convincing her parents, Bob and Mary Ann, to participate. "
