Sam, Tom, Jackie, and Gillian have all been pulled away from their everyday lives and thrown into a strangely relaxed prison.  No one is giving them any answers as to why they were chosen to be imprisoned.  The only rule of the prison: you cannot leave for any reason.  But they can all communicate to each other via a video chat feature on a laptop given to each of them.  Meanwhile, outside, a mysterious pandemic continues. At least, that’s what the media is calling it…  The four “prisoners” must either work to live “together” in this new world or try to find a way to escape it. If there is a way…
