The Terror Hunter

The Terror Hunter

Manfred Nowak is appointed by the UN to fight torture. On his missions to countries around the globe he all too often finds clear evidence that torture is commonplace in today’s world.

Nowak’s job is fraught with obstacles. He must confront representatives of some of the world’s most powerful governments and struggles with a UN system with several member states that are very critical of his work.

In the film survivors from China, Zimbabwe and Moldova tell their stories about torture used to create fear and obtain confessions – true or false. And a former US interrogation officer talks about how he tortured a detainee in Fallujah in Iraq, thereby destroying the values from his own upbringing, namely to be “my brother´s keeper”.
