    • Synopsis
    • Following a bank robbery, four employees are left locked in the airtight vault. With no way of opening the door from inside, they await a rescue party that doesn’t arrive. Panic arises. They wonder why no one comes for them: no family, no friends…no police.
      Assistant manager, Byron, believes the robbers had precise knowledge of them and the bank, perhaps even someone they knew. Harvey, the manager, accuses the others of aiding the robbers, possibly even orchestrating the entire event. The two female bank tellers, Sally and Abby, are also beginning to question their dire situation. Each grows suspicious of the other.
      When the bank doesn’t open in the morning, it’ll clue the town in on their predicament and ensure someone will come to rescue the foursome. However, Harvey calculates, by then, they’ll run out of oxygen. A terrorizing fact: they’ll suffocate within hours.
      Feeling doomed, Byron reveals a dark secret about a past event. Several of them committed an unspeakable act, which may have led to them being locked inside the vault. Perhaps more than a robbery, this was an act of revenge.
      As they unsuccessfully attempt escape, one thing becomes perfectly clear: there’s only enough oxygen for two people to survive till morning. Each plans their next move… a move that will have life and death consequences.
