A set-up for an experiment in an empty room. Former inmates reconstruct an Israeli secret service interrogation centre. These Palestinian men use role play to come to terms with their memories and the humiliation they have experienced.

المخرج رائد أندوني يضع إعلانا في إحدى الصحف في رام الله. وهو يبحث عن سجناء سابقين في مركز استجواب موسكوبيا في القدس. وبعد عملية اختيار الممثلين، يرتب لبناء نسخة طبق الأصل من غرف الاستجواب والزنازين في المركز ليتم توسيع نطاقها داخل قاعة – تحت إشراف دقيق من السجناء السابقين وبناء على ذكرياتهم. في هذا السياق الواقعي، يعيد الرجال بعد ذلك تمثيل استجواباتهم، ويناقشون تفاصيل عن السجن، ويعبرون عن الإذلال الذي تعرضوا له أثناء احتجازهم.
