SYNOPSIS  Three men with different desires connect inside an elevator in a building in Bucharest. The first one has a broken leg and is passionate about fishing. The second man desperately wants to smoke, but his girlfriend watches him. The third one is holding the elevator door open. However, not all is what it seems. The first two find the elevator stuck and transformed. As they enter, they get transported to another time and place. The three stories merge as they uncover what lies beneath the elevator.
