Synopsis

Based on the memoir of 45 year-old Mohamedou Ould Slahi, a man who was a suspected terrorist and has been incarcerated at Guantanamo bay for 14 years without ever being charged with a crime or having the opportunity to defend himself in court.
Slahi is the son of a nomadic herder who has been subjected to “enhanced interrogation” techniques that include everything but waterboarding. His memoir claims he was subjected to being kept awake for days, having his ribs broken, being blindfolded and taken out to sea where he was told he would be executed.
