Trapped in an Elevator

Trapped in an Elevator

This comic “folk opera” begins when a man forgets his wife’s birthday. Carlton Jones buys a bagful of expensive presents in an effort to appease his beloved. He takes the elevator on his way to her but it breaks down, leaving him trapped with five other people: a woman and her unruly teenaged daughter, a man who was forced to end a relationship with his fiancée, and two women who find out they share more than a friendship.

Trapped in an Elevator (2009)
