    Drama

    A group of hotel interns wake up in an ice-cold van. They don’t know each other yet, and have just arrived to do their internships. The strict manager of the hotel numbers the students: real names are not relevant, and there is no place for individuality here. As the group move through green-lit corridors and empty rooms while performing the tasks allocated to them, time becomes increasingly diffuse and the atmosphere increasingly eerie. What exactly is going on here?
