A cinematic meditation on the terrors of torture.

No one should be subject to torture, cruel, inhuman or degrading behaviour or punishment. This is valid for both people and animals, believes artist Douglas Gordon. This is an episode from the series of ten short films based on Ten New Commandments for the purposes on the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
