I just watched a movie which is based on true events called 'The Road To Guantanamo' and I felt that I need to share this movie with u all. It is really2 worth watching. Enjoy. Below is the synopsis of the movie:

Not long after the event of 9/11 in year 2001, a British born Pakistani named Asif Iqbal went to his village in Pakistan to meet his future wife as his mother insisted. He agreed to marry the girl & decided to get married in Pakistan. So, he invited his 3 close friends who are a British born Pakistani named Shafiq Rasul & 2 British born Bangladeshis named Ruhal Ahmed & Monir to attend his wedding. However, before the wedding, they all decided to go to Afghanistan to see the situation in the country. Out of their expectations, Afghanistan was being bombed by the American forces in retaliation for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Once there, with the loss of Monir in the wartime chaos, they were captured by Northern Alliance fighters. They were then handed over to the American forces who transported them to the prison camps at the Guantanamo Bay base in Cuba. What followed was three years of relentless imprisonment, interrogations and torture to make them submit to blatantly wrong confessions to being terrorists. In the midst of this abuse, the three struggled to keep their spirits up in that face of this grave injustice.
