‘The Mauritanian’ describes Mohamedou Ould Salahi’s 14-year journey while detained at the US naval base in Cuba without ever having been charged with any crime. Once Salahi is transported to Gitmo, authorities begin to suspect him of involvement in the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center Twin Towers.
