Their caretaker “Mama” Isabella loves them all. They have regular exams and studies at the house. Hence, they are not allowed to venture outside the premises of the house anytime. No contact with the outside world. Emma has two best friends, Ray and Norman.
One day, one of the kids is set to be adopted. He is going to leave the house. This gives Emma and Norman the opportunity as they want to return her stuffed toy and ultimately to follow her. Soon afterward, they find out the secret of their orphanage. They are well-fed only to be sacrificed for creatures known as Demons. The kids are butchered and sold as meat. After finding this out, the kids are scared. However, they make plans to get out of this hell before the falling victim.
