Story intro

A young disheveled man falls from the ceiling into a library. He frantically looks for a code to enter into a puzzle as the walls around him start to move in. The movie resets to three days earlier. Shy Physics student Zoey, struggling stockboy Ben, young trader Jason, pyrophobic war veteran Amanda, former miner Mike and escape room enthusiast Danny are all gifted a puzzle box invitation to the Minos Escape Room Facility for a chance to win ten thousand dollars should they successfully escape. Each player walks into a waiting room, and is told by a person behind a frosted window to "have a seat and someone will be with you shortly". When Ben tries leaving the waiting room at the facility for a smoke break, the door handle breaks off, revealing that the game has actually begun. The players notice there's a puzzle within the broken door handle. The players scramble around the room looking for a numerical code. Zoey notices a number on one of the books in Mike's hand. She runs to the door puzzle and turns the dial, initiating a giant heater/oven effect in the room. As the heat intensifies, the players search desperately to escape. The players bang on the frosted glass to get the attendant's attention, but after finding the key to open the window, it is discovered the attendant is a mannequin and the voice was only a recording. Suddenly, the phone rings. Jason answers the phone. A recording tells them to play by the rules. Amanda freaks out, prompting Zoey to fetch her some water from a nearby cooler. After giving the water to Amanda, Zoey notices some intense scars on the back of Amanda's neck. The oven effect worsens, making it unbearable. Zoey notice's a sign by the cooler to use the coasters. She runs to the nearby coffee table and presses down on one coaster. It sinks into the coffee table, revealing a shaft door in the wall. Several players push each coaster down, opening the doorway completely. Jason crawls through the shaft and finds an exit. Mike goes next. Amanda goes third, but has a panic attack and a flashback of her crawling through the aftermath of an IED attack. Zoey goes in and coaxes her to go on. Ben and Danny take turns filling glasses of water to hold the coasters down so they can go. At long last, the chandelier is revealed to be an extreme picket light. At the last second, Danny and Ben go through the shaft as the room explodes.
