Plot – Spoilers:
Different characters waken in a mysterious cube-shaped room with exits in all the six sides. Exploring these exits reveal more cube-shaped rooms, some of which are fitted with traps that cause horrific deaths. None of them can recall how or why they ended up in the Cube, but they must now work together to find a way out of it, if one exists. They slowly realize that they were not randomly placed ending up together by chance, but were instead handpicked based on individual talents they possess. So you have a cop, a doctor, a math student, a former designer of the outer shell of the Cube, a prison escapee and a Dustin Hoffman in Rainman type retard.
As sleep deprivation kicks in and the stress levels soar, the bickering begins as they blame each other for their unfortunate situation and this leads to further challenges in addition to the ones already in hand. Eventually they figure that there are math puzzles that need to be solved and this increases the stress and dependence on certain characters while others appear redundant and disposable, which in turn flicks on beast mode for some.
