A civil war has brought seemingly endless sorrow to the United Kingdom in the not so distant future.
In a white-walled cell, a woman awakes alone. Over speakers in the cell, an anonymous voice altered via electronic means asks her questions. After she claims that she doesn't have the answers her captor seeks, she is tortured via tools connected to the cell.
The woman, who claims during the questioning that her name is Ruth, experiences electrocution from metal floor plates, unbearable cold and heat and even exposure to dripping acid.
Who is Ruth really? Why does her torturer think she's lying to him?
