September 2001: Fours Muslims from Britain had embarded to Pakistan for a friend's wedding. When they decided to go to Afghanistan to help the people, they were seen as troops for Bin Ladin and soon found themselves in Guantanamo Bay.

Guantanamo Bay is a US prison camp in Cuba, described by US as the "worse of the worst". They are neither classified as prisoners of war nor given a fair trial. While living conditions are described as 'humane', isolation, sleep deprivation, exposure to hot and cold, bright lights, and loud music were used during interrogations at Guantanamo.

Interspersed with real life interviews with the "Tipton Three", archival footages and reports, this docu-drama strikes every chord to portray this ugly side of the world. Yet, it does not attempt to milk for symphaty or stir feelings of hate, as every part is told in straight forward fashion. It is factual and it's up to the audience to decide how they should feel.

The "Tipton Three" were released last year, the fourth friend still not found. However, there are still engineers, teachers, mental health sufferers – the innocent still kept in this notorious prison.

June 2006 – Three detainees just committed suicide by hanging themselves with their clothes last week. The suicide was described by a US officer as "a good PR move to draw attention".
