Storyline

At the bottom of a deep stone-walled dry well, a man wakes up, only to see another man already there. Without a doubt, both strangers are hopelessly trapped, moreover, after a brief conversation, it is quite obvious that they have a completely different understanding of their environment: the former strongly believes that he is inside an ordinary well, while the latter, is convinced that they are in the bowels of a dismal dungeon. There is only one way to find out the truth. Written by Nick Riganas

Paradoxical Enjoyment
13 September 2017 | by Enrique-Sanchez-56See all my reviews

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT FILM!! The production values and the actors were phenomenal in their undertaking.

I must say, I was taken in by the superb development of this story. No, I was transported! Leave it to the British to create something of such high quality! Thank you to all who took part for, one, a fascinating story that could have been expanded (though I am glad it wasn't) and two, for the utterly surprising twist of an ending! I highly recommend this movie and it baffles me that the first reviewer chose to only see this under a negative light. Some people just don't get things. I got it and I loved it.
