The Devil's Advocate
Emmy Award-winning filmmakers follow controversial defence lawyers who represent high profile men accused of terrorism; the Shoe Bomber Richard Reid charged with trying to kill 197 people aboard American Airlines flight, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, charged with conspiring with Osama bin Laden to kill Americans, and a Guantanamo inmate Ghaleb al-Bahani, accused of fighting on behalf of Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. The three attorneys fight for the rights of the three accused to be upheld, the same as any other accused person. The film weaves the attorneys’ stories together to reveal their personal and professional sacrifice.
