Rabiye Kurnaz gegen George W. Bush

Directed by Andreas Dresen

Cast: Abdullah Emre Öztürk, Alexander Scheer, Charly Hübner, Meltem Kaptan, Nazmi Kırık

The battle for the release of her son Murat from Guantanamo catapults Turkish housewife Rabiye Kurnaz from her terraced house in Bremen straight into world politics and all the way to the Supreme Court in Washington. At her side is human rights lawyer Bernhard Docke – the reserved, level-headed lawyer and the temperamental Turkish mother with a wicked sense of humour – now fighting side-by-side to get Murat out.
