The Road To Guantanamo is the story of four friends who set off from the Midlands in September 2001 for an innocent wedding and holiday in Pakistan. Two and a half years later only three of them returned home. Through their epic journey we hear the story of their misunderstandings, ignorance, confusions and friendships as step by step they go from the safety of their small-town teenage existence to the heart of the 'war on terror'. Through a series of interviews with the men, dramatised scenes and archive news footage, the film shows how they ended up in Afghanistan hiding with Taliban fighters. Under fire from US Fighter planes they're handed over to the US, only to be kept in horrific conditions at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba for over two years.

I watched Michael Winterbottom's drama documentary, which shows how 3 young british muslims were arrested in Afghanistan and then taken to Guantanamo, at the US X Ray Camp and Delta Camp. I found it unbelievable that in the name of a war against terror, those who claimed to bring justice actually brought more terror by ill treating men who were not convicted of any crimes!!
