Synopsis
Taxi driver and sometime journalist Tarek Fahd (Moritz Bleibtreu) volunteers for a prison simulation experiment at a university, on the day before he accidentally meets Dora (Maren eggert), with whom he forms an instant bond. Next day, on the promise of DM4000 for two weeks work, Tarek is accepted into a group of 20 men, 12 of whom become 'prisoners' and 8 the 'guards'. Armed with spectacles containing a hidden camera, Tarek plans to revive his career in journalism and make another DM10,000 writing a story about his experiences as 'Prisoner 77'. His deliberate provocation riles Berus (Justus Von Dohnany), one of the guards, and is the catalyst for the simulation taking a violent turn with events escalating to deadly proportions. And when Dora hasn’t heard from him for a few days, she begins to wonder why. (http://www.urbancinefile.com.au)
