Summary A trio of British Muslims vacationing in Afghanistan shortly after 9/11 are captured by the American military and sent to the Guantanamo Bay detainment camp. For the next two years, they are imprisoned without any charges officially being filed. They are tortured and interrogated relentlessly, in hopes of getting them to "confess" their nonexistent link to Al-Qaida. A fictionalized account of the actual experiences of "The Tipton Three," incorporating interviews, news footage and extensive reenactments by professional actors.
