Facility 468, a secret Russian research base deep in the Ural mountains.
It’s purpose? To discover how to combat the effects of long term sleep deprivation.
An insignificant facility, barely even worth mentioning.
Then one day, contact is unexpectedly lost, the last broadcast from the facility showing it has been the scene of unprecedented slaughter.
