Fadi, Nuri, and Ahmed are best friends… and they are being hunted. When reports about the torture and executions of gay men in Baghdad start multiplying in 2008, a small team from the Human Rights Watch in NYC hastily plans a rescue mission that could be these three men’s salvation.
But will the HRW be greeted as liberators when it becomes painfully obvious that their mission has no clear exit strategy?
