Three complete strangers—a rising actor, a disgruntled street thug and a vocally-impaired college girl—all wake up trapped inside a strange metal-grated room with no way out and no memory of how they got there.
Synopsis/Details: 

The only thing more terrifying than not knowing where you are is not knowing why you’re there, as a man in a tuxedo soon comes to find out after awakening in a strange metal-grated room with no memory of who he is or how he got there. And he’s not alone. Two other unwilling companions shortly gain consciousness as well—a disgruntled, short-tempered street thug and a seemingly innocent college girl unfavorably conditioned from birth without the use of her vocal chords, both similarly repressed of any recollection of their identities and how their current predicament came to be. Trapped with no way out through a single door that can’t be opened, fear and hostility boil between the trio as accusations and assumptions arise. Is it a ransomed kidnapping? A government experiment? A practical joke? Alien abduction? Or is one of them not entirely telling the truth? Once cooler heads prevail and they meticulously manage to finally escape the confines of their imprisonment, the depth of confusion only deepens within a much larger maze of metal and steel-grated rooms and hallways where a horrifying revelation lurks beyond their darkest dreaded nightmares. Putting their differences aside, the reluctant group must work together to overcome hopeless odds if they’re to survive and discover the final astounding truth and purpose connecting their lives to each other in this award-winning intense twisting mindbender that will keep you guessing and second-guessing until the shocking end.
