Russian scientists are fast tracking Gas 76-IA to human trials. It has enormous military potential and could give them the edge they need in the Cold War, but it’s too early for safe tests.
Animal testing did not end well. Rather than waiting for the drug to be refined, scientists are pushed towards less ethical research methods…
…experimenting upon political prisoners…
The experiment is a lottery. Braving thirty days of insomnia, locked in a Soviet bunker under close observation, may win them their freedom, but at what cost?
The Russian Sleep Experiment
Based on the classic creepypasta story
Four political prisoners living in a 1940s Siberian POW camp volunteer to be Subjects in a Soviet Military experiment. They are promised freedom in exchange for completing the exercise. In return they must endure 30 days without sleep, fuelled by Gas 76-IA. One researcher, Luka, stands alone in believing the experiment needs to be stopped before irreversible damage is done but is he too late? The Subjects no longer want the Gas switched off.
