The movie tells the true story of three British muslims, Rhuhel Ahmed, Shafiq Rasul and Asif Iqbal, who were arrested as suspected terrorists and then held in America's Cuba-based prison camp for two years, until they were eventually released without charge. The three men were captured and interned in Afghanistan in 2001.
The film blends news footage, interviews, and scenes set in Guantanamo, Afghanistan and Pakistan using actors. Winterbottom's other fim credits include '24 Hour Party People', 'Welcome To Sarajevo' and 'A Cock And Bull Story'.
Ahmed, Rasul and Iqbal are suing the US Government for torture and other human rights abuses.
