Documentary: Internal Exile

In the post 9/11 world, liberty is slaughtered in the name of security; extraordinary measures have given full authority to governments to detain whoever for whatever reason for however long they want in the so called War on Terrorism. Muslims, being labeled the enemy in the new world, bear the brunt of these impingements on freedom.
Internal Exile, tells the stories of 3 Muslims in Britain who have just been done with "Control Orders" which is literally the same as being in a "prison without bars". They were electronically tagged and could not attempt to do the simplest things we take for granted. The Home Office controlled their entire life and that of their close family and friends.
