This looks pretty good. from the CDS release…
Between Floors examines the human condition through a uniquely claustrophobic lens, intercutting between five stuck elevators and the people trapped inside them. Each elevator becomes an existential purgatory, forcing its occupants to confront not only their isolation but also themselves and each other in varied and unexpected ways. Taking place entirely inside these elevators, Between Floors is as unusual as it is arresting, blurring lines of genre, tone and form while its characters are stripped bare—trapped, alone, waiting—and we get to watch what happens. Awkwardly funny, numbingly tragic, anxiously crushing, and ultimately liberating, the film features a colorful variety of characters stripped of control, slowed to a halt, and forced to reflect … until the doors open.
