Synopsis

In a bare room, a doberman sleeps on the floor, tied to a rusty metal block. On the other side of the room is a woman. She is barely clothed and lying on an old bed, tied up. It is clear that she has been there for a long time. The bed is covered in stains, the woman’s wrists and ankles are raw from struggling against the ties, and her face is stained with tears. The room's two windows are blacked out with bin bags and the only sound that can be heard is the monotonous hum of an air vent.
When she surprisingly manages to free one of her hands, the dog begins an incessant angry barking. The woman hurries to free herself from the complex knots but it is difficult for her to concentrate as the doberman is pulling on his own rope, lunging at her.

All the noise alerts her mysterious captor and he heads for the room. The woman manages to free herself and she tears at a window, ripping open a binbag. Under the bag, she discovers a metal meshing stopping her from getting to the window itself. Footsteps approach. Can she make it?
