On 9 June 2006 three Guantanamo detainees died inside the base. The prison authorities said that the detainees had taken their own lives. The parents of the detainees said their sons were killed.

This is the horrifying story about one of the deceased, Yasser Al-Zahrani from Saudi Arabia. He was only 17 years old when he came to Guantanamo in 2002. His father has filed a case against Donald Rumsfeld. The father states, "They tortured him. Then they killed him and returned him to me in a box, cut up."

The Norweigen filmmaker, Erling Borgen, has been to seven countries and worked for three years with this documentary. He interviews released Guantanamo detainees, lawyers representing the Guantanamo prisoners - and describes a father's struggle to find out the truth about what happened to his son.

The film features former Guantanamo prisoners Omar Deghayes, Moazzam Begg, Al Jazeera's Sami al-Hajj, survivor of the brutal massacre at Qala-i-Jangi, Walid al-Hajj, and Colonel Talal al-Zahrani, father of Yasser.
