Synopsis
A man is abducted from the streets of London and transported via secret flights to an unknown country. Held in solitary confinement and cut off from the outside world, he is plunged into a lawless nightmare of detention without trial, interrogation and torture. Returned without explanation to the UK many months later, he is left to pick up the pieces of a shattered life in a world he no longer recognises.

Taking its lead from real events in the UK and reflecting the increasing trend of the kidnapping of terrorist suspects by western governments , EXTRAORDINARY RENDITION is an essential film for essentially troubled times.
