The Mauritanian is a legal drama movie. The film follows Mohamedou Ould Salahi, who is arrested by the U.S. government and languishes in the Guantánamo Bay prison camp without charge or trial. Losing all faith, Salahi seeks allies in defense of Nancy Hollander and her associate Teri Duncan. Together, they encounter endless challenges in the desperate search of justice.
Their controversial lobbying, along with false facts found by the powerful military investigator, Lt. Colonel Stuart Couch, finally exposes a startling and far-reaching plot.
