This film is a dramatised reconstruction
of events between 1968 and 1973.

and court transcripts.

CARRYING OUT EXTRAORDINARY RENDITIONS IN EU COUNTRIES.

as much as my constituency is.”

Margaret Thatcher, 1981

“It is like layers of an onion, and the more you
peel them away, the more you feel like crying.
There are two laws running this country:
one for the security services and one for the
rest of us.”

James Miller, ex-MI5 agent.
