A production house's best editors, Eric and Boy, are asked to stay up late and edit the last draft of its launching project entitled, "Kuba-O!" which is a story that talks about the origin of witches or mangkukulams in Philippines during the 1600s. Amidst editing, Boy finds himself meditating on the meanings of what true horror is in real-life through his recent experiences in life during his past employer, an old aristocrat, who he accidentally killed due because of highly intensified senses. Upon his confession, Eric chooses to take everything as a joke and leaves the office early only to find himself locked inside a big white room together with six other people that he doesn't know.
