MANHUNT

SYNOPSIS

MANHUNT tells the remarkable story of the search for the world’s most notorious terrorist, Osama bin Laden.

For more than two decades, he was the target of intense scrutiny, with an entire unit at the CIA dedicated to tracking his every move and trying to determine what violence he might perpetrate. When 9/11 confirmed bin Laden’s intentions, these same analysts and operatives were now blamed for failing to prevent the attack, although they had spent years warning about the possibility of an attack.

MANHUNT features testimony and recollections – many shared for the first time – from the CIA officers who labored to destroy bin Laden’s terrorist organization and eventually kill the man himself. This real-life spy thriller includes behind-the-scenes accounts from actual analysts, targeters and operatives, who testify to the disagreements, frustrations, tragedies and triumphs that marked this fascinating and painful chapter in American history.
