Four inhabitants of a crumbling world, each with a story of their own:
A drug-addled boy, living in dank recesses, sets out in an ancient car to find his ex, who has mysteriously vanished overnight.
A privileged girl, obsessed with the past and exiled by her esteemed father, learns more about her long-vanished ancestors than she ever could have wished for.
An old man, on his 100th birthday, deserts his quiet post as an elevator operator, climbing the great shaft in hopes of seeing the fabled topmost level before he dies.
And a fisherman, seeking answers to why his once-vibrant wife is now chronically ailing and wasting away, begins a quest to find and confront the god of all gods.
These stories intersect and wrap around each other, revealing deeply disturbing truths about the artifical world they inhabit.
