Clare Newell needed money for rent, a simple thing when she discovers a psychology experiment is offering money in return for participation. But when she sees a distraught volunteer run from the building, coupled with a lack of understanding of what the study is about, she starts to worry. But Prof Farley is authoritive and calming, and she starts the study. Opposite her, strapped to a chair, is Holly, another volunteer. She has memorised the answers to a series of questions Clare asked, but every time she gets one wrong, Clare has to electrocute her, pushing up the current with each wrong answer. Pushed by the spectre of government and  threats from Farley, Clare will soon discover how far she is willing to go in the name of national security.
