There’s only one thing that’s more difficult than escaping a life-threatening maze, only to face the brutal conditions of the scorch. And that’s trying to sum up everything that happens in the first two Maze Runner films in 30 seconds.

But because Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials stars Ki Hong Lee, Alexander Flores, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and Dylan O’Brien are so used to being asked to do the impossible, we had them attempt it anyway. Watch what happened when they tried to explain all in only 30 seconds.

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials hits theaters Sept. 18.
