Plot Edit

A man's alarm clock goes off in the morning. The man gets out of bed and approaches a secure door. He pushes the right buttons and has his fingerprint scanned, and the door unlocks. The man heads inside and throws a series of switches and levers. He continues onto a walkway overlooking a vast array of machinery that he has activated. At the end of the walkway, a chamber emerges up from the ground. Inside is a coffee cup, and the machine pours coffee into it. The man drinks the coffee, and puts the cup back inside.[2]
