In a drab future with oxygen scarcity, a cleaning woman works in a gloomy slaughterhouse. Here, brute men cut away the gills from graceful fish people in order to stay alive themselves. In this fantasy film, the young cleaner realises she has got nothing to lose and decides to save Adam, who is waiting to be slaughtered.
