During the War on Terror started after 9/11, Gamel Sadek, a Muslim schoolteacher is taken from his home and delivered to Bagram Air Base, a CIA black site, where he is questioned about the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden. Despite relentless beatings, starvation, and torture in Gitmo, Gamel maintains his innocence. As Gamel prepares for a hearing on his status with his lawyer, he realizes he could be held indefinitely, and that a testimony from John, a military interrogator, will be the deciding factor.
