I'm not sure I understand the task. We're supposed to write a story about a character who's in a prison or hell-like environment that is so horrendous that (s)he can't escape it?
The task is to place a character/yourself into their worst absolute situation possible. Be it a literal hell, a prison, reality, fantasy, etc so that they face their worst horrific sort of fear.
