Set in Taiwan in 1962, during the White Terror martial law period, teenage student Fang and a classmate visit their high school after dark to try and solve the disappearance of their friends and teachers who founded an illegal book club. Plagued by strange visions and pursued by horrific creatures, Fang begins to suspect she may have had a role in the disappearance of her schoolmates. Adapted from the eponymous video game, Detention combines psychological horror and historical political drama to make Taiwan’s repression tangible and remind us how precious democratic freedom is.
