What happens if prisoners become the guards of their own imprisonment?
Four guinea-pig prisoners are locked in a cell and banned from speaking. Speaking is punished in different ways. Bodies that can’t speak move; movements become a game, the games a competition for power, the competition for power becomes violence, and violence bloodshed. A new set of guards has emerged in the cell.
