Film Description: 

The animation shows the daily pattern of the prisoners and how they were treated by the SS guards. An aged man looks back at his imprisonment at Oranjehotel during the WWII. He tells about his experiences in the prison and in particular about his new cell mate Pieter, a persistent resistance fighter who became his friend during their stay. Pieter and three fellow resistance fighters were taken into custody by the Germans, because they had robbed a post-office and were betrayed. Their stay at Oranjehotel was brief and unpleasant.
