This is a documentary about Diyarbakir prison where some of the most horrific atrocities of state terror in recent history took place after the military coup of 12th September 1980. The documentary exposes how the use of systematic torture and turkification policies were imposed by the state upon all prisoners of which most of were Kurdish prisoners. While the Turkish military authorities describe the prison as a “military school”, the prisoners describe it as “years of indescribable brutality”. The only way to break the chain of atrocities was to resist and sacrifice yourself. The prisoners took up the challenge to break it and 3 decades later director Çayan Demirel takes up the challenge again to show us what happened.
