IFC has released the first trailer for Camp X-Ray, a new film in which Kristen Stewart stars as a soldier assigned to Guantanamo Bay where she befriends a man (Peyman Maadi) imprisoned there for eight years.
Here’s the complete synopsis:
A young woman joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small town roots. But she ends up as a new guard at Guantanamo Bay instead, where her mission is far from black and white. Surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive squadmates, she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees. A story of two people, on opposite sides of a war, struggling to find their way through the ethical quagmire of Guantanamo Bay. And in the process, they form an unlikely bond that changes them both.
The studio has set an October 17 release for the picture, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year.
