Essential Killing


Jerzy Skolimowski

2010, 1 h 25 min

We do not know whether he is an al-Qaida fighter or an innocent man who found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Mohamed, captured by U.S. troops in Afghanistan, is transported to a secret base camp in Central Europe. He manages to escape from the transport. Now, in order to survive, he won’t hesitate to commit the cruelest crime.
