Refusing to dump her son in law's body in a wheelie bin, Dawn Herbert convinces her daughter that a stormwater tunnel would be safer. But once they are inside the tunnel, the hatch slams shut, locking them inside with the body. The two women are forced to confront their worst nightmare . . .each other. During their desperate search to find a way out of the slowly flooding labyrinth, the two women have disturbing insights into themselves and their relationship.
