The human body can only handle so much pain before the mind is permanently scarred. This graphic depiction of inhuman acts follows the stories of five people from around the world, who endured torture and lived to tell the horrific tales. Their tales of cruelty and torture, while unique in circumstance, time period, and location, display shocking similarities. From the dungeons of a Syrian prison, to the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" in Vietnam, Director Murad Amayreh, delves deep into the darkest secrets of one of the most controversial issues in history. These first hand accounts of brutality and survival lead one to question the extent of human sadism and the limits of human fortitude.
