At the end of a tipless shift at a local diner, a young black waitress, Dolores, stumbles on a flier for a paid psychological study seeking diverse participants. Upon her arrival at the research facility, Dolores undergoes an experiment that tests her pain tolerance with the use of auditory and sensorial triggers which gradually intensify. Once the test is completed, we reveal that Dolores is unknowingly being watched by an unexpected audience.
