Five people are coerced into a bank vault during a violent robbery. Camaraderie gives way to conflict as the will to survive spawns paranoia and deception. One by one, the captives turn on each other, create alliances, reveal their true selves and even resort to murder. This dark comic thriller, part survival story and part cautionary tale, enthralls and surprises from the opening scene to a final haunting discovery.
