Tom (Jesse Eisenberg) and Gemma (Imogen Poots) are a young couple who are prepared to share a relationship together. For this they have decided to look for a house further from the center where we can start a family project in a quieter environment. Your first option is a newly built urbanization that defines your homes as "ideals," literally. With the perfect measures, the necessary space ... even so, after the peculiar real estate agent played by Jonathan Aris teaches them all the services, they are not convinced. The knot of the movie begins when they start driving to try to get out of there. They soon realize that they are going around urbanization and that, finally, there is no way out. At some point they have entered some kind of macabre game in which they might want to live inside that maze to figure out how to get out. In addition, a certain day a newborn at your door, a child who will have to take care if they want to get out of there according to the instructions and who will grow in this strange experiment.
