Working overtime can be murder...

What happens when you let your work get on top of you?

Meet John Stark, put-upon junior executive at M.T.S. Pharmaceuticals. Working to meet his budget deadlines late into the night, his paperwork literally takes on a life of its own, as, tired of being subjugated and confined to filing cabinet prisons, it rebels against its master.

Now, John must fight to stay alive, in a decidedly hostile working environment.

@03:49So basically at a medical research facility the papers have mutated and reacted in some way that they obtained conscious thought and somehow is angry at humans for ... ?

My imagination takes me as far as there, how exactly did the paper gain artificial intelligence?
