Inspired by the Survivor reality show. In the show, some or all of the people voted off are placed in “sequesterville” or “Ponderosa” for the remainder of the filming, so that no clues make it to the outside world of who has been voted off. From videos we’ve seen, they stay in tents, in an isolated area. Presumably they’re compensated in some fashion for staying there. Now if someone wanted to give up the compensation and leave, it would certainly be illegal for the production team to physically bar them from leaving. But what if they just refused to provide them any transportation? “You’re of course free to go, but it’s 15 miles on bad roads to the nearest town, so have a nice walk.” Could that be false imprisonment? The person agreed ahead of time to remain in sequesterville for the entire time, and changed their mind later.
This is different from the previous locked thread in that its a perfectly safe area for the person to stay in - food, shelter, medical care is all provided, it’s just that there’s no easy or safe way to get out without the cooperation of the producers.
