Pretty much out of the blue, Lisa (Annabel Barrett) and Adam (Ignacyo Matynia), total strangers to one another, find themselves locked up in what's best described as a dog kennel, with collars round their necks chained to walls, and they're fed what looks like dogfood once a day by a masked kennel master and his equally masked goons, and let out for a walk only occasionally, with their collars featuring a mechanism to strangle them via remote control should they try to escape - in other words they are treated like dogs. They have no idea why, or who their captors are, but having no-one to relie on but one another brings them closer and closer to each other, and eventually they start to plan making an escape together. But when Adam actually manages to overcome one of their guards, Lisa knocks him out ... because you see, Lisa's actually part of the crew led by Doctor Fischer (Katy Dore) that conducts an experiment on human behaviour under extreme conditions, and she works very close with her keepers George (Ryan Q. Tran) and Erika (Shay Denison) when it comes to keeping Adam in check. Thing is, Lisa has a hidden agenda of her own, and it seems it's no coincidence she's put in the kennel with Adam, who isn't as much a stranger to her as she's to him, something which might actually jeopardize the experiment. But what's a much bigger threat to not only the experiment but also Lisa and Adam and everyone else involved is that George isn't quite as stable as he ought to be, and he has taken to drugging Lisa and Adam and done other things to corrupt the experiment's results ...

 

Of course, the premise of this movie, as interesting as it might seem, takes quite a bit of suspension of disbelief, but at the same time the concept does provide a good mystery, with its slow resolution, including the rather unexpected plot developments, serving well as the movie's backbone. And a directorial effort that's at times painfully clinical gives the film the proper atmosphere of doom, with strong performances by all involved grounding the movie, and making this one cool piece of genre cinema.
