Teacher Rainer Wenger has to teach ‘autocracy’ during project week, and when his pupils tell him they don’t believe it would be possible to have another dictatorship in Germany, he decides to do an experiment on them, creating a ‘gang’ culture in the classroom, his aim being to show them how it is possible to manipulate groups of people.
