      Things takes a sudden turn when Leo has to stand in for an engineer and give a
      presentation in a small rural community. There, Leo is swept away by Lou, a
      distressed young woman who takes him beyond the beaten track. This
      encounter spells a new beginning for Leo, a strange, chaotic journey filled with
      unexpected twists and turns.
      But who knows what really festers deep inside this apparently harmless office
      worker?
      No one knows. Not even Leo.
      Especially not Leo…
