Two months after 9/11, Mohamedou Slahi played here by Tahar Rahim, was taken in for questioning as he was thought to be a recruiter for the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center. We learn that he was taken to Guantanamo Bay where he has been detained since then. It’s now 2005 when Nancy Hollander, a criminal defense lawyer played by Jodie Foster, learns of his story. She along with her associate Teri, played by Shailene Woodley attempt to file a Habeus Corpus to determine if there’s enough evidence against to him to warrant his detention at Gitmo. Benedict Cumberbatch also stars as the lead prosecutor in the case who harbors a personal connection to the attacks on 9/11.
