Torture victims in Russia are brought back to life four times

Yaroslavl Prison No. 1 is a desolate brick building with barbed wire on the banks of the Russian Volga.

We meet with a former inmate, Yevgeny Makarov.

He had just been in the house for six years and eight months – here and in another of Yaroslavl's Insalubrious Prisons.

Prison guards do not want us filming. Mr. Makarov did not miss a beat, pushes his cell phone camera in the faces and asks them to know their problem. He does not let up. Finally they go away.
