When Allison Alloy, a no nonsense prison warden, receives terrible news from a doctor, the last thing she wants is for a new inmate (Elliot Spark) to go on a hunger strike to demand a cell with a window.
Forced to talk to him, Alloy enters Elliot's cell with one objective in mind: to get him to eat!
As she listens to Elliot’s story, however, Alloy notices some strange patterns. Perhaps these fables about magic key opening doors into fantastic worlds are more than silly tales. And maybe if she dares to step into Elliot’s world, she can recoup the hope that she lost long ago.
