Viewers can immerse themselves in the lives of a group of mature Muslim women in this thought provoking drama. Dressed in their hijabs, they leave the familiarity of their Bangladeshi community and set out on a voyage of discovery.
In 2001, four Pakistani Britons, Ruhal Ahmed, Asif Iqbal and Shafiq Rasul and another friend, Monir, travel to Pakistan for a wedding and in a urge of idealism, decide to see the situation of war torn Afganistan which is 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 are captured by Northern Alliance fighters. They are then handed them over the American forces who transport them to the prison camps at the Guantanamo Bay base in Cuba. What follows is 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 struggle to keep their spirits up in that face of this grave injustice. Written by

[rapping to an American guard]
My name's Shafiq Rasul, and I'm from Tipton, I tell them I ain't Taliban, but they don't wanna listen. You won't believe I just came out here, for my mate's wedding, do you? I never thought my ass, would be heading for Cuba.

A group of Muslim men innocently went on a tourist trip from UK to Pakistan, but they accidentally finished in Afghanistan, where they accidentally traveled to the frontline, where they were accidentally captured. Bad Americans tortured them and then flew them over to Guantanamo where they were tortured even more, but they remained defiant to the very end, said nothing, stayed true to each other and became even more devoted Muslims in the end.
I find all that strangely similar to "Rambo: First Blood" where Stallone has also innocently traveled to that small American town where he was accidentally involved in trouble and was captured by that bad American sheriff. Then he was tortured, but he also said nothing, remained braveful and defiant and has even managed to escape and exact some revenge on his tormentors. OK, I guess we will have to wait for "The Road to Guantanamo 2" to see how these brave, innocent Muslims exacted revenge on those bad American interrogators.
