This gripping tale of urban horror follows the lives of five lonely tenants strangers whose lives become intertwined when they discover a dark mark scrawled on the walls of their building. The horror sprouts quite innocently from a small seed and finds life as something otherworldly, damaged, full of love, hate, fear, and power. As the walls come alive, everyone is slowly driven mad defenseless against the evil in the building, stripped of free will, leaving only confusion, chaos, and eventual death.
