    In 1962 during the White Terror period in Taiwan, two high schoolers wake up and find themselves trapped on a vacated campus after school. As a series of mysterious events unfold around them, they realize that their hope of escape hinges on finding out what had happened to their friends and teachers while they were asleep. Have they really forgotten what happened or are they just too afraid to recall it? (photo credits: Warner Bros.)
