Shining a long-overdue spotlight on the shamefully forgotten women who flourished as jazz musicians at a time when men ruled the beat, it gives voice to performers whose names are too often unknown even among their musical sisters of [today].”

    Five men have spent nearly 30 years combined in Canadian prisons. None saw the evidence against them. None was charged with a crime. This documentary about the human impact of the “War on Terror”offers a sobering examination of the Canadian government’s use of security certificates, a Kafkaesque tool allowing for indefinite detention without charges, based on evidence not revealed to the accused or their lawyers. Through the experience of the detainees and their families, the film raises poignant questions about the balance between security and liberty.
