While Amarna and she plots a plan to escape, Uma shocks when Markus appears suddenly as part of the Paradise Hills' staff, for disgust of an Amarna who had started to feel attracted to Uma. Alerted by Amarna about the milk they drink as part of their dinner, Uma manages to avoid drinking and investigates Paradise Hills at night for her own risk, discovering the terrible truth: all the island is a giant control room to study the students' behavior and appearance in order to be replicated by inferior girls hired to replace them when they "back" to the world after the original is killed. With time running against her, Uma and the rest of the girls must find a way to survive before they are the next to be replaced.
