In the spirit of Hitchcock’s ROPE and LIFEBOAT, this unconventional thriller takes place entirely inside an elevator within St Julian Hospital; a decrepit, inner-city building. Once a respected hospital, St. Julian now welcomes only the city’s oppressed and corrupt.

As four strangers begin a routine descent, the elevator suddenly lurches to a halt, getting stuck between floors. An irritating inconvenience erupts into crisis when one of the passengers exposes a fatal wound…

As the minutes tick away, one of the four strangers reveals himself as an assassin, and that their current predicament is no accident. A battle for survival ensues among them and each of their sordid ties to St. Julian are revealed, with devastating consequences.
