Pete, a twenty-six year old high school dropout, shares an apartment with Auger, a socially incapable medical student with aspirations of becoming a surgeon. Pete works at a deli with his best friend Jill and wants thing more than to injure himself on the job so he can collect a huge cash settlement and retire, a plan he shares with Jill and Auger only half-jokingly. But Pete is beginning to tice things about his roommate, like the strange ises coming from Auger's room late at night, the sheets of plastic covering his walls and his floor, and the big chest freezer he seems to constantly be filling with ice. But these are little things, after all, thing to be concerned about. Auger always pays his share of the rent on time and never causes any problems. He's just a quiet guy who never looks you in the eye and never seems to be totally present when you're talking to him, living behind a perpetually locked door in a room shrouded in plastic. Nope, thing at all to be concerned about.
