Synopsis:

A man wakes up alone in a white room with no windows or doors. When he presses a mysterious phallic protuberance that appears on the wall, a pink toothbrush materializes from nowhere, clattering to the floor and setting in motion a bizarre chain of events. Soon the imprisoned man is engaged in absurd and hilarious attempts to escape, releasing random objects from the walls and creating a life sized mouse trap game in which a rope, a toilet plunger and an earthenware jug full of sushi might just be the keys to his escape.
