A somewhat insignificant Water Inspector enters an apartment building, located in the middle of nowhere, to register the residents’ water meters. Before he knows it, he finds himself trapped inside the building facing an “Alice in No-Wonderland”-like maze of obstacles. In his pursuit to escape the twisted reality of the building, the Water Inspector is confronted by the many residents who are all trying to make their existence tolerable. Pushed around and tested by them, he gradually loses track of himself and his humanity. In a weak moment he accidentally commits murder and is eventually sentenced to death. However, when all hope seems lost, an unexpected opportunity arises and freedom no longer seems far away.
