Sam is just an ordinary girl, she has her friends and her perfect boyfriend. Nothing could get worse, nothing could get better. Or so she thought. Her whole life turned out to be a huge lie when she discovers the door that she was never meant to be found. Her friends and boyfriend are androids, her whole life was based on a lie. She has been a simple rat all her life, being watched by other people, as a betting game to see her reaction to certain scenarios and guess what she would do next. Then she meets 956
, a boy who is in the same situation as her that she never knew about. They work together to find a way to reach the outside world before the game ends, along with their lives.
