Summary
This film is the first feature-length documentary about how health care professionals actively implemented and covered up the tortures in Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and the CIA Black Sites. The film shows how the torture of detainees could not continue without the assistance of these American doctors. The little-known story is told by military, legal and medical experts and portrayed through staged demonstrations as spelled out in declassified government documents
