Here is a short review of "The Platform" movie plot summary.
Goreng (Iván Massagué) wakes in a concrete cell marked with the number 48. His cellmate, Trimagasi (Zorion Eguileor), explains that they are in a "Vertical Self-Management Center" aka "The Pit", a tower-style facility in which food is delivered via a platform that travels from the top down, stopping for a fixed period on each floor. Those on lower levels can eat only what those above leave, and the cell is heated or cooled to fatal temperatures if anyone tries to keep any of the food.
People are randomly reassigned to a new level each month. Each resident is allowed to bring one item in with them, Goreng choosing a copy of Don Quixote, and Trimagasi a self-sharpening knife. Trimagasi reveals that when assigned to level 132, he and his former cellmate cannibalized a resident who had fallen down the shaft. One day, a bloodied woman named Miharu (Alexandra Masangkay) rides down on the platform. Trimagasi explains that she descends the pit every month in search of her child.
As they talk, it is revealed that Goreng volunteered to spend six months in the facility in exchange for a diploma, and Trimagasi is serving a year-long sentence for manslaughter. Over the first month, they become friends, but on the day of the room shuffle, Goreng wakes up tied to his bed. They have been reassigned to level 171, where the platform is expected to be empty of food when it arrives. Trimagasi explains that he plans to cut strips of Goreng's flesh to sustain them both, and if Goreng is complicit, he may survive. On the eighth day, Trimagasi grows weaker and starts cutting into Goreng's leg but is attacked by Miharu as she comes down the platform. She frees Goreng and he kills Trimagasi. Miharu cuts out some of Trimagasi's flesh, feeding Goreng and eating some herself. She nurses Goreng, but leaves on the platform when he asks her about her child. On the night before the shuffle, Goreng is haunted by Trimagasi, who explains that they are now both one and the same and that Trimagasi will never leave him.
