Do you like puzzles? A bewildered young man is questioned by a ruthless interrogator, who cirlces like a predator, forcing him closer and closer to an awful admission. But who are these 2 men? Where are they and What is their secret? Each piece will steer you towards the dramatic conclusion. Can you solve the puzzle before the last shocking piece is laid bare?
