Summary Edit

The year is 1990, the place, Stevenage. Michael, Alison, and Laura work in an office. A new employee, Jamie, arrives, and they assume he is a spy from higher-up. The marriage of Michael and Laura slowly collapses as Jamie lies to the trio, leading Michael and Allison into an affair. Eventually, while at Jamie's apartment, Michael cuts off his own middle finger. After the trio touch one another, they fuse into a Matryoska Gestalt.
