2 unrelated men had to compete in a game of billiard, in a mysterious bar. the bet was their lives. the cruelty increased as these men were thrown into something even darker as severe trauma were forced upon them. only minutes into the show, we were able to relate to the 2 main characters. it was impossible not to empathize them. there were other minor characters that acted as hosts for the event. the tension build steadily, making the experience rather mesmerizing in return. soon curiosity won and one would want to know how things turned out to be at the very end. with such a dark backdrop, the atmosphere was very well created.
