Synopsis
In 1987, 22 people were arrested by Singapore’s Internal Security Department, and accused of being involved in a Marxist conspiracy. Featuring interviews with ex-detainees and political exiles, the film focuses on the first 30 days of the arrests. The ex-detainees describe the physical and psychological torture techniques used by their interrogators, and show how they were coerced into “confessing” on national television. This ignoble history of the Internal Security Act is a damning indictment of how detention without trial is not just a special kind of law, but a suspension of law.
