  • slideshow_large

Charlotte Greenwood

Synopsis

A young businessman, John Maxted, checks into a hotel for a weekend conference. Upon entering his room, he discovers a button on his wall.

Due to Maxted's lonely and introverted personality and with the increasing pressures from the oddball characters surrounding him, the button begins to play on his mind and he slowly sinks into a deep state of paranoia. Maxted's fascination with the button becomes an obsession, but his profound mental insecurities deter him from pressing it.
