Summary
The murder trial of Canadian Omar Khadr before a U.S. Military Commission in Guantanamo is scheduled for January 2009. Accused of killing an American soldier with a grenade during a firefight in Afghanistan in July 2002, most of the evidence against him is based on a series of confessions Omar allegedly made at the age of 15 while in U.S. custody at the military base in Bagram and later in Guantanamo. Omar's defense team claims that these are false confessions extracted under torture. They also argue that he was a child who was dragged into the world of al-Qaeda and left with strangers, ordered by his father to be a translator. This documentary offers Omar's first-hand account of torture, as well as a detailed recreation of the fateful firefight, interviews with eyewitnesses and an examination of the much-criticized Guantanamo military commissions. Will Omar receive a fair trial? Is justice a right of all Canadian citizens?
