2011
Rating:
TV-MA
Captured and transported to a foreign harsh foreign land, unable to speak the language, and with relentless pursuers following his every move, Mohammed (Vincent Gallo) is constantly confronted with the choice of kill or be killed. A Taliban fighter, Mohammed is captured by US forces while fighting in the desert. He is interrogated, water-boarded, imprisoned and transported to a secret detention center somewhere in eastern Europe. While in transit,a fateful car accident lands him the opportunity to escape his captivity, leaving him stranded in the cold with no shoes, warm clothing, and still in handcuffs. Using his wits and his sheer will to live, Mohammed battles winter cold, starvation, hunting traps, and the elements to stay alive. Relentlessly pursued by an army that does not officially exist, Mohammed confronts the necessity to kill in order to survive. Whether the protagonist is or is not a terrorist is a question the film does not explore. The film is about a struggle for survival, not politics.moreless
