Official Logline

Trapped in a lift, a man and woman are forced to confront each other about the night they first met.


A woman faces her worst nightmare when she finds herself trapped in a lift with a man, who, without her consent, pressured her into having sex with him a few weeks before. But he remembers that night very differently, and is shocked to discover what she thinks happened.

It’s the first time they’ve seen each other since and an emotional argument ensues. Will he take responsibility for his actions? Will she be able to use this encounter to finally move on?
