Cramped together within a narrow steel hull, a submarine crew is fast approaching breaking point.
Tempers run short. Frustration runs high. Fights erupt.
Oleg sees his crewmates sink further away from humanity as a bestial savagery surfaces.
He himself holds his humanity close, caressing a well-worn photograph he hides under his pillow.
The tension breaks momentarily when the crew spots a woman floating at sea. They scramble to bring her aboard.
But when they learn that she is dead, brutish appetites awaken. It’s a struggle to stay human when you only have the savage beast within for company.
