In this Hitchcock-esque, white-knuckle thriller, nine strangers are stuck in an elevator on the 49th floor of an upscale Manhattan high-rise … and one of them has a ticking bomb! But who … and why?
The rising star TV news reporter … building security guard … or soon-to-retire millionaire CEO with his granddaughter? The bond trader … struggling comedian … pregnant office worker and her successful boyfriend … or the elderly widow?
With no escape, each will do anything to survive. Desperation and panic grow as help fails to arrive and people slowly unmask – revealing racial tension, financial scandal, scorned lovers and revenge – with an unthinkable horror becoming the only solution!
