    • Synopsis
    • A small town in Mexico. A washed-up, middle aged professional wrestler, Escargotman is having breakfast with his wife, two kids and father. Every morning, Escargtoman enjoys reading the newspaper over coffee ----the happiest time of his day---the only moment of peace before tackling a physically and emotionally challenging job. But this morning, his wife notices something different about him. She somehow knows this is not because of her husband upcoming fight against a notoriously aggressive young fighter, Tequila Joe. This is something a lot bigger.
      Meanwhile, a man wakes up and mysteriously finds himself trapped in an empty, white rectangular room, wearing clownish bright yellow polka dot pajamas. Where is he? Who did this to him? How did he end up here? He has no idea how he got into this predicament. He looks to find that he is surrounded by a bunch of phallic-like symbols sticking out of the walls! Desperately trying to find his way out, he touches them, and suddenly, starts experiencing one strange phenomena after another. Will he manage to make him escape to safety?
