‘Elevator’ tells a story about how two completely different people get stuck in the elevator of a new, uninhabited house.

One of them is Timur, a typical “rich kid” who’s used to high living. The second one, Askar, is an elderly single man who works as a security guard in this housing complex.

After desperate attempts to get out of the elevator, they realize that all their efforts are in vain. The only thing they can do is to calm down and wait for outside help. As much as 3 days.

Everything is going well, but at some point Timur realizes that something was wrong with his new acquaintance. What exactly is wrong with him? What worries him? How to survive 3 days?
