Instead, she’s sent to Guantanamo. Met with hatred and abuse from the men in her charge, she forges an odd friendship with a young man who has been imprisoned at Gitmo for eight years.
Plot: A young woman joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small-town roots. Instead, she ends up as a new guard at Guantanamo Bay, where her mission is far from black and white. Surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive squadmates, she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees.

Which side are you on?
The movie itself was quite good and I think that it lives up to a 7.5 star rating. Now, as said before I enjoyed the film but do understand that for many (Including myself) it can be seen as a little to slow…Until arriving to the climax, which is absolutely great! The thing is, that we need to understand what this movie is really trying to portray. Its showing us the crude reality of how heartless and dehumanizing humanity can be through the eyes of Cole (Kristen Stewart) who starts to see how harsh things are and as said in the movie “it’s not all so black and white”. Kristen Stewart’s acting was good but nothing out of the ordinary… I have to say that Maddi’s performance was very good and really interprets the character by truly reflecting what Ali was feeling and displaying his desperation of having been in Guantanamo Bay for 8 years. To sum it up, the movie is good and quite the worthwhile. Be patient at the beginning cause it gets better and better as it progresses.’

We are all just ordinary people wrapped in extraordinary circumstances. Sometimes we are at war, sometimes we are in parallel worlds.
This is the movie that I approached somehow unprepared. And it sinks in quite heavily as time lapses. I was just expecting a delivery of a quite important issue in digestible form, planning to nod my head shortly after “yeah, I’ve got it,” and to make amendments to never be a bad “guy” bullying the ones I possibly could. And then all this sh.i.t (sic) was all over my face. I feel that it talked to me, to all of us about all of us. About conformism, ignorance, love, kindness, and love again. Only love is selfless enough to let us see another person, any person, first and the foremost as an equal, as a human being, as ourselves. Regardless of heated argument, or war, or anger, or spitting at each other’s face – we only have a human mirror being hold in front of us and we only respond to our own contorted face in it.
Minimalism of footage and strength of message left me thinking. At the final credits I was staring at the darkening screen amazed by simplicity of universal language of love traits – selfless, accepting, and unconditional. The love not needing a reason and not asking for a return. An honest awareness about cohesive substance of all humanity makes us capable to deliver all acts of kindness to people standing vulnerably before our eyes. We are fully responsible and accountable for a privileged position of knowledge. Ignorance is not bliss but, all too often, becomes a silent cause of tragedies, especially after discovering the truth.
I am sorry for the arrogance of power-holders.
I am sorry for the unprotected from unfair conditions in the name of higher purpose.
I am sorry for the conformists closing their eyes and being OK with a non-OK.
