A horror story. Four friends set out on an expedition to abandoned factory in the Lower Silesia, where one participant’s brother disappeared the previous year. At the same time, a group of troublesome youths from a detention centre are admitted as volunteers to the nearby psychiatric hospital. All of them will soon become witnesses, or even participants, to horrifying experiments conducted at the factory.
