Bella Bettien is based on a true story. That's the gripping fact of this film. The film shows how a Dutch girl got involved in the international narcotics world, and makes us a witness of her incredible career. As part of an International Police Operation, called "Green Ice", Bettien was arrested at Piazza Navona in Rome in 1992. She was forced to make a choice: cooperate with the authorities, or to spend the rest of her life in jail. She cooperated. Many criminals were arrested and sentenced and Bettien disappeared. Somewhere in this world the REAL Bettien still lives, now being a "guest" of a Witness Protection Programme.
