A crowded bus full of strangers becomes an unlikely scene of tension and suspicion as passengers size each other up. Social hierarchies emerge as the mass of anonymous individuals silently judges one another. The uneasy atmosphere intensifies when the bus suddenly breaks down, trapping the crowd together. As patience wears thin, primal fears and aggression simmer to the surface. The driver’s accidental death in the confined space ignites the darker instincts lurking within. Without the civilizing forces of society, civility deteriorates into a savage and absurd crime.
