The Elevator

Synopsis

In an elevator a chance encounter between two men creates an atmosphere which instigates presumptions. A question belying preconception cultivates these presumptions which mutate through ignorance into fear during the journey downwards. A man's mind disintegrates. The past explains all and we then witness the final, beautiful scene.
