The Road to Guantanamo


This docu-drama takes a look at the harrowing tale of three British Moslems who were caught in the wrong place at the wrong time by the American forces in Afghanistan. Accused of being terrorists, they were jailed in Afghanistan before being shipped off to the now-notorious Guantanamo Bay facility in Cuba, where they were further abused. They were eventually released after three years without being charged, or receiving an apology or compensation for their suffering.
