A sustained interview with 
Moazzam Begg, a former detainee
at Guantánamo Bay, Ghadiali’s film is a platform for the Birmingham native to present his extraordinary case history. Begg’s links to the Afghan Taliban, and his presence in Bosnia 
at the time of its ethnic cleansing
led to his arrest: however, in spite of his incarcerations he has never been convicted of a criminal act. Stylistically the film is redolent of Errol Morris’ classic The Fog of War, though the tone is more interrogatory at times as Begg is questioned on the gaps and coincidences in his testimony.
