The story of two contrasting Libyans, one a key official in the former regime, the other one of the most prominent figures of the post-revolutionary period in Libya. Through these two characters, we discover the circumstances surrounding one of the most influential events in modern Libyan history: The Abu Salim Prison massacre in which more than 1,200 political prisoners were killed in the space of just a few hours. The film shifts between past and present through the two protagonists who exchange the role of victim. The majority of the events and dialogue that feature in the film were taken directly from testimonies of former prisoners and wardens.
