In an alternate world, a group of men go down into the abandoned undercity to search for two people who have disappeared.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

The dialogue is very poor, especially in the scenes with Aluna. The story is filled with jarring, unbelievable scenes. For example, when Aluna describes the experiment that led to the death of his brother, her casual comments about replacing him with a clone fall completely flat.
