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.
