In the days following the Belarus presidential election in August 2020, numerous protests erupt throughout the country. The OMON special police take particularly brutal action against demonstrators, which spills over onto passers-by. In total, almost 7,000 people are arrested throughout Belarus. Hundreds of victims recount their experiences in interviews. Their reports reveal a system of repression, which is reconstructed in the director's room in Berlin-Neukölln in the form of a filmic guide.
