Meanwhile, in another part of the city, a severed hand, of what appears to be a young man, escapes from a dissection laboratory, determined to find his body again. As he advances through the pitfalls of Paris, in a dizzying race through a city planted with traps, he begins to remember his past life with the young man he was once attached to until a terrible accident was triggered ...
