Synopsis
For many years, Mohamedou Slahi was considered one of the most dangerous terrorists in the world. For 14 years, he was incarcerated in the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay and was tortured under the brutal 'special interrogation' procedure. Today, Slahi is a free man, exonerated by two U.S. courts. After two years of intensive research, the filmmakers have been able to identify his tormentors. Some members of the torture team still believe he is guilty. Others see their former victim in a different way. Did the months and years of terrible abuse and torture create a special relationship between perpetrators and victim? The investigative documentary accompanies perpetrators and victim on their quest for forgiveness.
