The industrial barbarianism of downtown Los Angeles is equal parts player and punisher in this survive-at-all-costs tale of a group of friends who get lost in the seedy streets where they encounter a crazed gang of homeless derelicts that captures and maims them one-by-one.

Clinging to sanity and reduced to helpless prey, with only instinct to guide him, can he survive this coliseum of horror?
