What is The Mauritanian About?
‘The Mauritanian’ chronicles the 14-year journey of Mohamedou Ould Salahi as he remained incarcerated at the U.S. Naval Base in Cuba without being charged with any crime ever. Once Salahi is transported to Gitmo, the authorities start suspecting him of being connected to the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center Twin Towers. As Salahi starts to lose all hope (or pretends to), he meets defense attorney Nancy Hollander and her associate Teri Duncan. The two start advocating for Salahi’s cause, and together with Salahi, they face numerous hurdles on their path to justice. One of these hurdles is Lt. Colonel Stuart Couch, who becomes responsible for lending a shocking twist to the story by unraveling a deep-rooted conspiracy that has no evidence.
