A man moves his two daughters to Italy after their mother dies in a car accident, in order to revitalize their lives. Genova changes all three of them as the youngest daughter starts to see the ghost of her mother, while the older one discovers her sexuality.
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 Guantanamo 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.Written by

This is a slick well put together piece of terrorist propaganda in which 3 boys who have had all the privileges and liberties of western society travel, weeks after 911, 12000 miles across the world and "get lost" in a van with 50 other foreign fighters, who also "got lost" after accidentally picking up AK47s and rpgs, and again accidentally head for the front-line in an imminent war. they are somehow mistaken for fighters, although they can't figure out why,something about the convoy being full to the brim with gun totting lunatics and are subsequently captured by Americans who are unrelentingly portrayed as barbarians.
The trick of this docu-farce is to make out that the terrorists are human beings too-- without showing one image of the child murderers they truly are..
The truly funny thing about this movie is the way the terrorists are portrayed as all being saintly individuals who would never hurt a fly (complete to swooning music).
The story is comical and riven with errors and smacks of a hastily put together "I-got-lost" tale given quickly after capture.
note: listen to the stats at the end and notice how not one mention is given of the 17% of terrorists that are recaptured on the battlefield after release...
defo worth a watch but doooooooooont get sucked in....
