MANHUNT tells the true story of the long, complicated and highly challenging search for the world's most wanted man: Osama bin Laden.

Thus, we are treated to the story of the group of female CIA analysts who were on the trail of bin Laden a decade before al-Qaeda's notorious attack on September 11th 2001.
