It’s a hot summer weekend on a student campus: the dorm is deserted, the maintenance is on vacation, and the elevator breaks down with three unlucky girls in it. As the three captives wait for their rescue, their waiting gradually becomes more about an escape from social restrictions imposed on them as young women by their society than about the escape from the walls of an old stinky elevator.
