Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Detainees subjected to torture in the War on Terror offer firsthand accounts of their harrowing experiences in some of the worst prisons on Earth. Every day, around the world, prisoners are tortured. Some are guilty, but the vast majority are innocent. What kind of lingering physical and mental effects does torture have on the people who were forced into giving false confessions under such barbaric circumstances? In this film, several primary sources offer explicit insight into the culture of suffering that few have experienced firsthand.
