In fighting the War on Terror, is torture ever justified? This tense and compelling single drama explores the murky moral compromises that underpin the hidden intelligence war, as an MI5 agent takes desperate measures to protect the country he loves. British intelligence officer Edward (David Oyelowo – Lincoln, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Help) has been monitoring a terrorist suspect in the UK for three years and has become certain that he is plotting a major terrorist attack on home soil. But when UK citizen Waleed (Arsher Ali – Four Lions, Beaver Falls) is tracked down in Cairo, he claims to have been the victim of torture at the hands of the local police, and their interrogation has to come to a halt while these allegations are investigated.
