THE ELEVATOR tells the story of Bruno, someone who attempts to go to the top floor of a building to get his… hat back. This mission may seem simple but in each elevator episode he has to face some of the most annoying specimens of the human race. Bruno has been quiet for far too long in his life, but now he enjoys the liberating pleasure of saying what he thinks of people, their habits and behaviors. The downside of this newly found freedom is that he sabotages his very mission and so he begins his ascent again and again. Yet his psychiatrist has been clear, if he wants to achieve his goal, he will have to accept his fellow man and quickly learn that he is partly responsible for his own consequences.

The Elevator is a clever metaphor of what separates us from our success and what we need to do to reach it. With a comical tone and a twist of cynicism, this series is well structured and full of surprises.
