The true story of Murat Kurna, a young man of Turkish origin living in Bremen, seeks to make sense of his life by turning to Islam. Shortly after September 11, 2001, he began a pilgrimage to Pakistan to study the Koran. He will not succeed: on the way, he is arrested and surrendered to the American authorities, before being imprisoned in the notorious Guantanamo base, without charge or trial. The result is nearly five years - exactly 1,725 ​​days - of interrogations, physical and psychological torture, isolation and disappointed hopes, in which Murat will never stop proclaiming his innocence. In front of him, an implacable interrogator, Gail Holford, himself subjected to hierarchical pressures, who by malicious manipulations and false promises attempts to extort from Murat confessions as to his supposed "terrorist activities".

The American ally

Faithfully inspired by the testimony of Murat Kurnaz (In the Hell of Guantanamo, Fayard, 2007), this Kafkaesque account of a staggering judicial clash forces us to face the inhuman actions of the American ally at Guantanamo, a universe in which the prisoner, guilty or innocent, has no rights. It is also the story of the incredible combativity of a man to whom everything has been taken apart from the certainty of his own innocence.
