Storyline

Struggling through the pages of an inconclusive story, a writer decides to retake an old manuscript with his typewriter. Just when everything seems to be picking up, there's a knock on the door. The unexpected intruder enters the room, he seems to be injured and falls down to the floor. Attempting to call an ambulance, the writer dials the emergency number, but as he gives his back to the uninvited visitor, he takes a blunt hit to the head and passes out, unconscious. When the writer wakes up, he's inside what appears to be a somewhat forgotten library. Aside for books, there's only one table and two chairs.

Suddenly, the writer is the one with the gun, while the ...
