In a labyrinth of plant-shaped buildings are dead ends, passage-ways, domes, vaulted ceilings, and giant statues. And everywhere there are images of death: mass graves, naked bodies in ditches and wells, a beehive structure filled with clusters of giant eggs -- a skeleton within each egg.
The crew's attempt to communicate with this civilization leads to violence and to a cruel truth -- cruel precisely because it is so human.
