★ Hunger unleashes madness in humans

★ A raw and metaphoric horror movie

One day Goreng wakes up with his future partner Trimagasi in the 33rd level of a prison-style structure pierced by a hole through which a platform descends with the meal leftovers of tenants on higher levels. Trimagasi knows the rules that govern this mysterious place: two people per level and an unknown number of them. If you go upwards you survive… but think too much and you will descend again. If you are at the bottom, where any food hardly arrives, you must trust nothing but your guts.
