Machtlos

Das Leben der El-Ibrahims verändert sich von Grund auf, als Anwar El-Ibrahim nach seinem Südafrika Aufenthalt nicht bei seiner Frau Izabella in den Vereinigten Staaten eintrifft. Izabella versucht verzweifelt etwas über den Verbleib ihres Gatten in Erfahrung zu bringen wobei sie feststellen muss, dass die CIA ihn ins Ausland entführt hat. Im Namen der nationalen Sicherheit wird Anwar von der Homeland Security als unmittelbare, terroristische Bedrohung eingestuft und daraufhin in ein Gefangenlager deportiert. Dort arbeitet zum Zeitpunkt seines Eintreffens ein junger, aufstrebender CIA-Analyst Douglas Freeman, welcher einer brutalen Befragung El-Ibrahims beiwohnen muss. Aufgrund dieses menschenverachtenden Verhörs stellt Douglas die Vorgehensweise seines Arbeitgebers in Frage und sucht nach einer plausiblen Rechtfertigung dieser unvertretbaren Strategie im Kampf gegen den Terrorismus.

Détention secrète

Anwar El-Ibraim, scientifique canadien d'ascendance égyptienne, est pressé de retrouver sa famille après un voyage d'affaires. A des milliers de kilomètres de là, au Caire, un attentat terroriste a fait plus d'une trentaine de morts, dont un Américain. L'attentat a été revendiqué par Rashid Silime, terroriste bien connu à la tête de la brigade El-Hazim, une cellule dissidente du Hezbollah. Il se trouve qu'Anwar est biochimiste, qu'il a une certaine expérience en fabrication de bombes et qu'il a des liens familiaux avec l'Egypte...Anwar monte dans un avion en Afrique du Sud en tant qu'homme d'affaires, il en descend à New York comme terroriste. Arrêté, menotté et emmené, il se retrouve nu, seul dans une étroite cellule. Ses ennuis ne font que commencer... Il fait l'objet du programme "extraordinary rendition"...

Rendition - Detenzione illegale

Anwar El-Ibrahimi, ingegnere chimico di origine egiziana, scompare misteriosamente durante un volo diretto dal Sudafrica a Washington D.C, dove risiede ormai da tempo. Mentre sua moglie Isabella, cittadina americana, lo cerca disperatamente, l’analista della CIA Douglas Freeman, si ritrova coinvolto in uno spietato interrogatorio ai danni dell’uomo, sequestrato dagli agenti federali e trasferito in una prigione segreta oltreoceano. L’accusa è di presunta complicità con pericolosi terroristi, ma qualcosa non quadra e l’ostaggio potrebbe essere innocente. Come riuscire a liberarlo?
