In a 360-degree virtual-reality movie, the viewer becomes a prisoner himself. The short film is based on the "interrogation protocols" of the DDR dissident and writer Jürgen Fuchs. On a virtual journey into the past, the viewer experiences interrogations and everyday life in the Stasi prison. He encounters guards, interrogators and cell neighbours.
