The film begins with a naked woman entering a room of strangers with in a warehouse type of setting. The strangers approach her and begin asking questions about who she is and what does she know about why she is here and what it's all about. The rest of the film involves learning about each other and little more about the "puzzle" of why they are here.
The premise is that there is game being played with the characters' lives. There are rules. If you break the rules, you die.
The plot is simple, but the interactions of the "players" is what keeps it interesting. Each "player" is unique and may or may not have something to hide.
I found the story interesting, but contrived. Some of the characters were a bit over-the-top for my taste, but most of them conveyed the fear, anger, and despair quite convincingly. The end of the film was a disappointment to me for reasons I won't divulge here.
I credit the producers for developing a good character study with very little investment. Good cinema doesn't always have to cost millions.
If you like a bare bones type production about human behavior in stressful conditions, then I recommend this to you.
