In 2001, four Pakistani Britons, Ruhal Ahmed, Asif Iqbal and Shafiq Rasul and another friend, Monir, travel to Pakistan for a wedding and in a urge of idealism, decide to see the situation of war torn Afganistan which is being bombed by the American forces in retaliation for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Once there, with the loss of Monir in the wartime chaos, they are captured by Northern Alliance fighters. They are then handed them over the American forces who transport them to the prison camps at the Guantánamo Bay base in Cuba. What follows is three years of relentless imprisonment, interrogations and torture to make them submit to blatantly wrong confessions to being terrorists. In the midst of this abuse, the three struggle to keep their spirits up in that face of this grave injustice. Source
This movie is a great documentary depicting the harsh treatments and conditions that our country is imposing on supposed terrorists or links to terrorists in Guantánamo Bay. If this doesn’t change your mind about Guantánamo, and how no matter what wars we are fighting, there is a need to treat people, at the very least, with the respect of being a fellow human being, you have no heart. I have no idea how anyone could support such a place in the name of freedom and safety.
