A documentary based on security camera footage from a prison in Guantanamo. This encounter between a team of Canadian intelligence agents and a child detainee in Guantanamo has never before been seen. Based on seven hours of video footage recently declassified by the Canadian courts this documentary delves into the unfolding high-stakes game of cat and mouse between captor and captive over a four day period. Maintaining the surveillance camera style this film analyzes the political, legal and scientific aspects of a forced dialogue.
