Three men with different desires connect in an elevator in an apartment building in Bucharest. The first one is a young man with a broken leg who’s passionate about fishing. The second man desperately wants to smoke, but his girlfriend is watching over him, making her disapproval clear even when she’s not there. The third one is holding the elevator door open, preventing them from getting their wish. However, not all is what it seems. The first two try to find out what floor the elevator is stuck on and find the elevator changed, transporting them to another time and place. The three stories become one as they uncover what lies beneath the elevator.
