Synopsis

The first-hand account of three British citizens who were held for two years without charges in the American military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Known as the "Tipton Three," in reference to their home town in Britain, the three were eventually returned to Britain and released, still having had no formal charges ever made against them at any time during their ordeal. The trio initially set out from Tipton in the British Midlands for a wedding in Pakistan, crossed the Afghanistan border just as the U.S. began its bombing campaign, were eventually captured by the Northern Alliance and were later imprisoned in Camp X-Ray and Camp Delta in Guantanamo.
