The Road to Guantánamo

Four British lads on holiday, decide to take a side trip to Afghanistan. Get taken prisoner by some Afghans, then the Americans, taken to Guantánamo for the next few years. If you were blind and heard the British working class accents, you would be bewildered by what was going on. But obviously anyone going to a cinema is unlikely to be blind and hence can see the skin colour of these boys which makes everything that happened to them is entirely understandable.

The story is told entirely from the boy's perspective and the motives of the Afghans, Americans and British they come in contact with can only be guessed at.
