Brief synopsis

Der Kampf um die Freilassung ihres Sohnes Murat aus dem Gefangenenlager Guantanamo katapultiert die türkische Hausfrau Rabiye Kurnaz aus ihrem Reihenhaus in Bremen-Hemelingen direkt in die Weltpolitik und schließlich vor den Supreme Court in Washington DC. An ihrer Seite steht dabei der Menschenrechtsanwalt Bernhard Docke, mit dem gemeinsam sie gegen vermeintlich übermächtige Gegner streitet.
