July 2020, the Netherlands. Police officers, acting on intercepted messages, stumbled upon a haunting sight nestled within Wouwse Plantage in Brabant. Seven shipping containers, believed to have been used by a narcotics gang, had been transformed into cells and sinister torture chambers, equipped with dentist chairs, straps, handcuffs, scalpels, claw hammers, pliers, gas burners, tie wraps, and duct tape.

A grim reflection of the widespread use of illegal substances in the Netherlands and its neighboring countries. Whether for leisure, to alleviate work stress, or to suppress psychological problems; the discovery of containers serves as a stark reminder for even the most casual drug users.
