It is 1982 and you are an agent of the Ministry of Admission manning the immigration checkpoint of the fictional communist country of Arstotzka. At your fingertips is the mighty Rubber Stamp, a tool that will irrevocably change lives forever… And, perhaps, even end some.
What do you do when a murderer on the run seeks admission to your country but all his documents are in order? What do you do when a married couple fleeing their tyrannical homeland is threatened to be separated by a missing work permit? What do you do when every violation of the Ministry’s increasingly labyrinthine immigration policy, accidental or deliberate, is docked from you merge salary and your son needs medicine?
By the way, that immigrant you just approved was a suicide bomber..
