Five qualified candidates have been interviewing for a job with the Carcharias Corporation, a large, successful conglomerate whose business practices are shrouded in mystery. On the night before the last round of interviews, they are all kidnapped and drugged. The next day, they wake up trapped together in a locked room with no hope of escape. They question each other, searching for explanations, and soon stumble upon the connection between them: they are each other's competition for the job with Carcharias. They immediately become suspicious of each other, realizing that they know all too little about the corporation they've been dealing with. However, their remaining questions are answered when they receive a phone call from the man who interviewed them, the CEO of Carcharias, known only as The Employer. He informs them that they are about to experience the final interview, and it's not at all what they were expecting.
