A New Yorker who recently resigned from his job, awakens in a desert mountain location. He doesn't know where he is. He sees an elderly man being shot at, the elderly man who eventually dies of his gunshot wounds. The New Yorker thinks he will befall the same fate as the elderly man. The New Yorker makes his way into a nearby city - a desert oasis - and learns that everyone there is called by a number, and that this city is called "The Village". Although knowing it is not his name or his home, everyone is calling him Six, and he lives in an apartment in the The Village. The face of the authorities of The Village is Two, who tells Six that The Village is the only reality there is. Six is told he's a free man, but he feels like he's a prisoner in The Village. He believes the elderly man, who Six learns was named 93, knew that there was an alternate reality outside of The Village and found a way to escape, which is the reason he was killed. With the help of a waitress named 554, Six also learns that there are a few in The Village who also believe there is a world outside of The Village. As Six tries to figure out what's going on, he has a recurring memory of a situation in New York involving a woman named Lucy.

Six is forced into attending a matchmaking service, the matchmaker, 1891, who appears unwanted on his television screen. He is matched with a blind woman named 4-15, who looks exactly like Lucy with whom Six had a sexual liaison in New York.

With Two and 313, she knows that he is aware that she is a dreamer, the reason why she feels she needs to help him. But she still has to decide if what he asks her to do is worth her long term happiness. Meanwhile, all the talk around The Village centers on the mysterious holes that have been appearing in The Village, which Two dismisses as weather related anomalies. To combat these, pigs are distributed to residents, as swine breath is deemed to be a atmosphere stabilizer. One of those holes is in 147 and 21-16's backyard. A tragedy occurs in their family because of the hole.

Both 313 and 147 mention encounters with Six that Six denies remembering. While 313 and 147 believe it's because Six is having a mental breakdown, Six soon realizes it is because there is a double of him wandering around The Village. Calling himself 2x6, the double, who is a vengeful version of Six, has the sole mission of killing Two. Despite his disdain for Two, Six wants to stop his double from accomplishing this task as he believes it will make him no better than those he despises. There is also a double of Two wandering around the Village, calling himself the Untwo or the Numberless, who has a different purpose. Meanwhile, Two discloses to 11-12 where The Village is located. 11-12 spends some one-on-one time with his mother, M2, for the first time in his life. She confirms and expands on what Two has previously told their son, which includes why 11-12 will spend the rest of his life in The Village. 313 is having nightmares and comes to face those nightmares directly when she finds a portal to another world.
