A few days later Steve invite her for a weekend trip to his house. Noa accepts and becomes shocked when finds Steve’s luxurious house.

Steve exposes that he is a butcher of human meat. He cuts human body parts and sells them to his customers. He usually harvests women’s meat because his wealthy customers like that taste. He keeps the girls alive as soon as possible so that he can deliver fresh meat.

In his thought,

It’s about giving. Giving yourself over to somebody. Becoming one with somebody else, forever. And that’s… That’s a beautiful thing. That’s surrender. That’s love.

Noa tries to escape but fails. On that occasion, Steve surgically removes her buttock as punishment.

Noa encounters another victim girl named Penny kept in the next room.

Mollie tries to communicate with Noa, but Steve replied to her as Noa to reduce distraction. Mollie becomes concerned that something is ungood and she starts investigating him.

She discovers Steve is using a false identity. His genuine name is Brendan, and he has a wife named Ann & two children.

Mollie goes to Ann’s house, to tell the truth, but strangely Ann unleashed herself as an accomplice of Steve. Therefore, Mollie was kept by him and taken to Noa’s neighboring room.

After that Steve starts forcing Noa to taste the human meat dishes. She does not make the same mistake as before and starts eating.

One night, Noa insists on Steve for sensual intimation. She attacks him when he responds to the appeal. At that point, Noa releases the other girls and after long fighting, they ultimately slay Steve and become free.
