Plot: The year is 1989. In the desolate countryside, there exists a small, nondescript orphanage. Under the tutelage of the headmistress, Dorothea Schröder, the sole employee and owner of the institution, the twelve children there appear to thrive, happy and content, seeing her as a mother figure. A government official arrives, as to supervise - however, he begins to impose, by the order of the government, increasingly extreme regulations on the orphanage, and begins to abuse, in many ways, both the children and the headmistress. As this continues, exponentially increasing in intensity, the children and the governess begin to plan to kill themselves en masse; they are found in discussion by the official and tortured into submission. Some time later, a liberating force reaches the orphanage, resulting in the gruesome death of the official. A revolution has occurred, and a more tranquil environment is restored. The governess and children recover from the abuse and torture of the official in a nearby town, but find themselves unable to return to the original orphanage. As a result, the local government requisitions an empty house and allows them to move there. It is but a few weeks after this move that an invading force arrives. The inhabitants of the area are killed savagely; overhead, the countryside and town, as well as their surroundings, are bombed. The headmistress barely survives; however, all the children are left dead. She hides herself under nearby rubble, and sees soldiers mutilating and defiling the burnt bodies of the children atop a pile of deformed, twisted bodies. In the night, she sneaks away and hangs herself from a tree.

Plot: (short summary, write in at least 7 sentences, more details would be much appreciated): The year is 1972. A large number of people disembark buses into a decrepit camp. They are first forced to strip; their clothes are thrown into a fire before them. Naked, they are herded into small buildings, forced into cage-like structures. In each, there are so many people that all must stand up, for there is no room to even sit. In stages, they are taken to a facility where their teeth are taken out, their tongues cut out, their mouths sewn shut, save for a small gap at the middle, and are castrated. They are allowed to recover; afterward, they are forced to work for 20 hours a day. They may not speak, write, or communicate in any way. What food they get is in the form of liquid, funneled down a straw into their mouths. They are often beaten; many die, and are thrown into ditches. Flies can be persistently heard across the film. The guards often abuse those in the camp in many ways. For their entertainment, they take twenty prisoners and insert fireworks into their bottoms. With the rest of the camp forced to watch, the fireworks are lit aflame.
After this, some of those in the camp are brave enough to stage an uprising. They attempt to do so, and fail, many of them dying. The entirety of the camp is herded into a hastily constructed building, where their limbs, noses, and ears are cut off, as well as their eyes gouged out. They are fed large quantities of castor oil, and are forced to consume their own excrement. All die within a week. Years later, revolutionaries find the rotting bodies of the inmates, still laying in the twisted positions in which they died.
The film is revealed to have been a true story, as evidenced by documents kept by the Ueliohen regime in Eastern Haane. Images taken from the dictatorship's remaining archives, as well as those taken by the revolutionaries, are shown.
Open source film; contents corroborated by the now defunct Haanean government.
