A shattering look at the shifting morals of terrorism and covert torture, Lionsgate’s Five Fingers stars Laurence Fishburne and Ryan Phillippe in a startling cat and mouse thriller that turns recent prisoner abuse scandals on their head.
An idealistic, Dutch pianist, Martijn (Ryan Philippe) travels to Morocco at the behest of his girlfriend to start a food program for malnourished children. But within moments of his arrival, Martijn and his British guide, Gavin, are abducted by terrorists who mistrust Martijn’s altruistic motives and proceed to interrogate him in an abandoned warehouse. Enduring unimaginable torture, Martijn desperately tries to prove his innocence to the group’s ruthless leader, Ahmat (Laurence Fishburne). Forced to question everything, and everyone, that brought him to Morocco, Martijn has only one choice: Solve the riddle of his captivity…or die trying.
An ingeniously constructed thriller, Five Fingers stares unflinchingly at the searing drama and ruthless politics that lie at the heart of global terrorism.
