“I want to get to know the dark sides in us humans, because these dark places are alive. They are life.”

Tanja, Jessie, Anna, Marcus and Kai hear about a game that is supposed to take place in an abandoned military base – a game without the limits society imposes on them. They apply. And the “Big Game” starts: “In the time outside you have been bended by social rules. Here, in the Barracks of Freedom, there are no rules.” They start to play and get slowly dragged into the insidious recesses of their “inner spaces”. What is game? What is reality? Where are the boundaries? Where does one end and where does the other begin? What starts as a harmless game, ends in tragedy. A metaphor of the Big Game we call “life”. A study of the dark side of our soul.
