In the spring of 2012, the US government captured a creature that wasn’t supposed to exist. Faced with a monster of myth and nightmares, they built a secret facility half a mile beneath the earth to lock it away. But the scientists and caregivers charged with observing this specimen have been selected because of the control the government has over them more than their skills. Every one of them is emotionally damaged or morally ambiguous. They are so consumed with tragedies from their past they barely notice the humanity of the monster they tend or their own monstrous actions. As they seek redemption for their sins and failures, they are completely blinded to the machinations of the sinister corporation plotting against the creature and everyone in contact with it.
