About the film

October 2001: As US-led forces invade Afghanistan in search of Osama Bin Laden, 22 members of China’s Uyghur minority happen to be in the country. They are about to be drawn into an unbelievable odyssey, becoming pawns who are mercilessly manipulated on the chessboard of international politico-economic interests. Sold to US forces, they are illegally detained at Guantánamo for years.
