This courtroom drama concisely illustrates the legal and ethical challenges of enemy detention in the war on terror. Based on the transcripts of Guantánamo military tribunals, this film brings viewers inside an administrative hearing to determine whether a devout Muslim engineer from Pakistan should continue to be designated as an unlawful enemy combatant and held without trial. Regarding the difficult decision the three judges must make, it provides a vehicle to examine the most fundamental issues of due process, as they seek to balance individual liberties with national security interests.
"The following is based upon actual transcripts of combatant status review tribunals (CSRTs) held at Guantánamo Bay Naval Base, Cuba." -- Opening credits of film. Originally produced in 2008.
