Australian refugee camps on Nauru - a tropical hell.
Dependent on international aid, the small island nation of Nauru in the Pacific is where Australians detain those they want to keep out. Ressler and Begg's film contains unique hidden-camera recordings from centers where asylum seekers are held in inhumane conditions. The images are accompanied by the words of former employees, whistle-blowers who describe the tragic situation of people sentenced to remain indefinitely in a tropical hell.
