SYNOPSIS

In a small police station filled with cigarette smoke, two older officers are sharing a meal and opinions on how social media is destroying families in Armenia. A younger officer, obviously nervous, interrupts to ask about a person in the interrogation room next door. The older officers shrug off his concern, teasing and hazing him. Next door, the person is coerced into signing papers that retract a complaint - an injustice that just might cost her her life. Based on a true story.
