“What’s true and what’s not depends on the viewpoint.”

In an underground labyrinth, a writer is holding two women captive: the courageous one and the hesitant one. He wants to make them experience their outer limits, lead them to the “top”. He tortures them in body and soul. However, his methods are not leading to the desired result. His publisher, a shady woman, is pushing him further and further. The torment is becoming more and more bizarre. Rules are put in place – only to be immediately broken. It looks like a battle against time as a stop watch continuously counts down towards zero. What will happen then?

The writer says: “Experiencing one’s outer limits is only possible once you are on the limit. But where is the boundary and where’s the borderguard?”

Nothing is as it seems.
