The policy of "extraordinary rendition" began under the Clinton administration and accelerated after September 11, 2001. The policy allows for handing over of suspected terrorists to countries that use torture as an interrogation tool. Anwar El-Ibrahimi is an Egyptian born man who disappears on a flight from Africa to Washington, DC. He is sent to a North African country where torture is practiced and the CIA gives approval. Anwar's pregnant American born wife wants to know what happened to her husband. A reluctant CIA agent begins to question this assignment after witnessing an unorthodox interrogation. A severe interrogator plays his trade on Anwar. A U.S. terrorism honcho is willing to turn a blind eye to the unpleasantness, especially if it stops a terrorist attack.
