Following her lover's instructions, Gaia finds herself in a park with a mysterious woman who leads her to a mansion where everything constantly changes. Despite the uneasiness caused by this brief visit, the young woman returns to the same place in search of explanations about certain phenomena that are beginning to occur around her. Her instinct suggests that the answer to the riddle might be inside the house. In it, she will experience terrifying, surreal experiences that, like one of those ancient Mysteries, will lead her to an understanding of herself. Forbidden ceremonies, shifting rooms, gods in human form, humans in godlike form -- nothing is certain in this supernatural universe.
