Psychological thriller in which young and wealthy friends from a futuristic Asian metropolis look for thrills. They participate in a behavioural experiment that lurches out of control.
For Lulu and her friends, the world is at their feet. They are young, gorgeous and extremely rich, can get anything and do everything. Life is one big party, but still it gnaws at them. Longing for thrills, the group of friends decides to take part in a shamanist ritual.
