Jon Stewart ("The Daily Show") makes his screenwriting and directorial debut in this riveting tale of hope and survival, based on a true story.

Falsely accused of espionage, Bahari is arrested and turned over to "Rosewater" (Kim Bodnia), a brutal interrogator who subjects the innocent reporter to months of beatings and torture to force him to confess he's a spy.
