Daniel J. Jones, a Senate staffer, is assigned the harrowing task of leading an investigation into the CIA’s systematic torture of terrorists in the years following the September 11 attacks. Following his analysis of extensive evidence, Jones determines thatthe CIA’s “enhanced interrogation techniques” were immoral, cruel, and ineffective, and were misrepresented by the CIA to policymakers. However, when Jones’ team attempts to publish their findings, the White House and CIA go to great lengths to suppress their report. Based on a true story, this intense narrative presents more than a decade’s worth of real-life political events and illuminates one man’s fight against inhumanity and injustice. Introduction by executive director of the 9/11 Commission Philip Zelikow (UVA)
