Sascha Zimmermann - Die box

14:30, 2013, Fiction
Hannah, a young woman, wakes up locked in a dark wooden box. She has no clue how she got there. She pleads for her freedom. All she wants is out of the box until she watches through a small crack while a gruesome surgery takes place just feet away. When she notices a number in her box and it suggests she is ’next’ she panics. She begs and pleads to no avail. For what happens outside of the box, determines her fate.
The Box is a dark twisted tale of capture for profit.
