Synopsis

S21 is the former security prison in Phnom Penh under the Pol Pot regime. From 1975 till 1979 thousands of people were tortured and executed by guards who were at that time only teenagers. Only a handful of prisoners managed to survive the imprisonment. Two of them, Van Nath ir Chum Mey, return to S21 (now the museum of genocide) and confront their former captors who also see themselves as the victims of circumstances.
