In the days following the presidential election in Belarus in August 2020, numerous protests erupted throughout the country. The special police, OMON, took particularly brutal action against demonstrators, even spilling over onto passers-by. In total, almost 7000 people were arrested throughout Belarus. Hundreds of victims recounted their experiences in interviews. Their accounts reveal a system of repression, which is reconstructed in detail in the director's room in Berlin Neukölln in the form of a cinematic guide.
